The Master of Education (MEd) in Language Education program is grounded in linguistics, language acquisition, TESOL methodology, multi-cultural learning, language assessment and literacy, as well as technology and foundations of teaching and curriculum design. The program allows you to focus additional time, depending on your area of interest, on adult education, technology assessment, literacy, special needs, classroom practices or classroom-based research.
