Program Overview

TUJ Graduate College of Education is postponing the opening of the admissions to the new PhD in Applied Linguistics cohorts. We will make an announcement with more details once it becomes available.

The PhD in Education, Concentration in Applied Linguistics, prepares students to study ways in which languages and, in particular, second or additional languages are used, taught, and learned in today’s increasingly globalized and multilingual world. The purpose of the PhD in Education, Concentration in Applied Linguistics, is to promote significant research on the teaching and learning of additional languages, including but not limited to English, and on the interaction between language ideologies and practices in multilingual communities and societies. The program provides students with the theoretical grounding, research experiences, and academic skills that prepare them for academic research positions in the areas of Applied Linguistics, Second and Foreign Language Education, and TESOL, as well as for other academic and practice-oriented positions.
