Educating Teachers of English, Endangered Languages, and World Languages

The University of Oregon (UO) Master of Arts (MA) degree program in Language Teaching Studies is a 15-month intensive graduate degree designed to prepare leaders in the field of language teaching and learning. A unique feature of this program is that participants are able to specialize in more than one language, including majority languages such as English and minoritized languages such as the indigenous languages of the Pacific Northwest.

The MA in Language Teaching Studies focuses on transformational approaches to language instruction through innovation in curriculum, pedagogy, materials development, digital technologies, and assessment, including how evidence-based principles and practices can be adapted across a wide range of language learning contexts. The program is particularly sensitive to the evolving needs of both majority and minority language learners in this era of globalization and internationalization.

Priority deadline for applications is February 1 of each year. Rolling admissions are possible through May 15 as space is available. 

The first term of the 15-month LTS program (late June – mid August) is online. This means students do not need to physically arrive on campus until Fall term (mid-September). Learn more.
