The Master of Arts in World Languages combines a graduate master’s degree with licensure to teach in the public schools. Students with the requisite background will be able to teach one or two foreign languages at the secondary level, or a foreign language and another high school subject such as History, Geography, or Math. The program actively seeks to license teachers for the critical languages language (Arabic, Chinese, Hindi/Urdu, Japanese, Korean, Persian/Farsi, and Russian).
