The Language Teaching Specialization (LTS) within the Department of Linguistics and the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (EALL) have made a short video highlighting the close connections among linguistics and pedagogy students in both departments. Thank you to the Graduate School for providing funding for this.
There are many ways that LTS and EALL students and faculty benefit from this relationship.
- Graduate students can pursue concurrent MA degrees in both departments with reduced credit requirements due to some shared coursework
- Students in either department can take elective coursework in the other department
- Graduate students can include committee members from both departments on their MA projects
- Students in either department can pursue a SLAT undergraduate or postgraduate certificate by taking specific coursework in both departments
- Graduate students in LTS can sometimes find funded graduate teaching positions in EALL
- Graduate students in LTS can find tutoring employment through EALL in the Chinese Flagship Program
These connections are not limited to LTS and EALL; LTS also shares coursework, teaching, internship, and MA Project advising opportunities through collaborations on campus with the American English Institute, the Center for Second Language, Romance Languages, the Yamada Language Center, German and Scandinavian, Russian and East European Studies, and the Northwest Indian Language Institute, as well as through collaborations with Lane Community College.
