Earning a master’s degree allows students to continue to develop expertise in a subject area. Programs may include a mix of lecture-based classes and in-depth research projects. The length of the program varies based on the field.

What is a Master in Languages? It is an advanced degree in the study of a language. The program can be in the student’s native language or in a foreign language. Some courses offer a specialization on becoming a language teacher while others focus on acquiring fluency in an additional language. Typical course offerings can include grammar, linguistics, literature, culture, history and writing. A course that specializes in teaching also includes courses on lesson planning and student evaluation.

A Master in Languages helps scholars become more culturally sensitive as they immerse themselves in another country’s language. Students in these programs are also likely to build their communication and critical-thinking skills.

Program costs may be a deciding factor when students are considering different options for obtaining a master’s degree in languages. Contacting schools directly is the best way to obtain this information. Fees are likely to fluctuate between programs.

Graduates who earn a Master in Languages have many career opportunities. Those who select a program that focuses on teaching a language could become teachers domestically or abroad. Students who study a language other than their native tongue could work as translators or interpreters. Someone with multiple language abilities could also work as a communication officer with a multinational corporation, intelligence or diplomatic service officer with the government or program manager with an international aid organization.

Students can earn a master’s degree in languages at many institutions around the world. With part-time and online options, in addition to traditional education, interested individuals have many options. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
