SLATE Program Requirements

There are three required components to complete the graduate concentration in SLATE: i) 28 hours of graduate coursework, ii) second language competence, and iii) a dissertation topic related to SLA and/or teacher education. Each component is described below.

How can I fulfill both the SLATE requirements and the requirements of my Ph.D. program?

The SLATE program is designed to meet the individual needs of its students. The course requirements in the affiliated units are generally flexible and allow students the freedom to conduct work in specialized subfields tailored to their academic interests in second/foreign language acquisition.
