The Divison of English and Applied Linguistics currently offers a variety of graduate courses in conjunction with the School of Education. These courses fulfill many of the requirements for master's degrees in TESOL and Education. Beginning in the fall of 2006, DEAL will begin to offer a master's degree in English. More information on this program will be posted as soon as it is available. Below is the current list of graduate courses that DEAL offers.
Certain 400-level English and Linguistics courses are designated "/G" courses (e.g., EN 460/G). This means that the course may be taken for graduate credit by graduate students. It is first necessary to be admitted for graduate course work. In order to receive graduate credit, it is necessary to fulfill additional requirements over and above those for undergraduate credit. For more information, you should contact the instructor of the "/G" course you wish to enroll in for graduate credit. If you have any questions, please contact the graduate office at 671-735-2169 or see the website for Graduate Studies programs .
