Master of Arts in Professional Language - French

Starting Fall 2022, the College of Humanities will offer a new Master of Arts in Professional Language (MAPL) to educate students for employment in government, business, and church positions that require a professional level of language proficiency and a graduate degree. French will be one of the first languages in the MAPL. Among the features of the degree will be an integrated BA/MA version in addition to a discrete MA, offering domain-specific language courses in a student's field of study, as well as a one-year immersive experience including direct enrollment in a French-language university and a one-semester internship in Quebec or France. Students will need to demonstrate superior-level proficiency (not the ACTFL scale) in at least one of three competencies by completion of the degree.
