Welcome to the Applied Linguistics Program
The Applied Linguistics Program offers an Ed.M. that requires 60 points beyond the bachelor’s degree, with a minimum of 30 points taken under the auspices of Teachers College. The program involves in-depth study in one or more of the language-related areas. The Ed.M. may serve as continued professional development or as groundwork for future doctoral studies in applied linguistics.
Students who did not receive their M.A. from Teachers College will be expected to have completed all the required courses from the M.A. in Applied Linguistics, below, or their equivalent. These “make-up” courses will not count towards the Ed.M.
