Upcoming Event

Mason undergraduates are eligible to apply to this bachelor's/accelerated master's program, which allows them to obtain both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree within an accelerated time frame. The program also offers the advantage of paying undergraduate tuition rates for graduate classes taken while finishing the bachelor’s degree, with some graduate classes able to count towards both degrees.

Our foreign/world language program offers an MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with a Concentration in Foreign Education (PK-12 licensure) in eight world languages! Through this program, you can prepare today’s children to live and work in today’s globally interconnected world as interculturally competent, bi-multilingual individuals.

All program options focus on the rich cultural, linguistic, and experiential assets that diverse learners bring to the classroom. Our teacher education coursework is carefully designed to ensure that you gain the theoretical understandings and pedagogical expertise to teach and serve today’s diverse learners effectively in today’s world language classrooms.
