UMass Boston Applied Linguistics Program
Introduction
We are a graduate-only program and provide a highly rigorous M.A. in Applied Linguistics degree with possible concentrations in English as a Second Language, Bilingual Education or Foreign  Language Pedagogy.  Josephine pursued and completed the English as a Second Language concentration 

Our faculty consists of several internationally renowned scholars in the field of Applied Linguistics and our program has played a pioneering role in preparing teachers in the fields of bilingual education, ESL and foreign language pedagogy (including English as a Foreign Language) since our inception in 1981.  We are the largest program of our kind in the state of Massachusetts and are consistently recognized as one of the most noteworthy graduate programs at UMass Boston.
