Welcome to Second Language Studies at MSU
Second Language Studies is an interdisciplinary Degree Program within the Applied Linguistics Program within the Department of Linguistics, Languages, and Cultures in the College of Arts & Letters. Along with SLS, the TESOL Program is also within the Applied Linguistics Program. TESOL offers a Minor and a MA. The SLS Program is for researchers and teacher-researchers interested in second language acquisition (SLA) and applied linguistics, and how those fields intersect with bilingualism, corpus linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, educational linguistics, pragmatics, and language assessment. If you have questions or want to join, contact us! Paula Winke, SLS Program Director email@example.com
