Middlebury College awards a doctoral-level degree, the Doctor of Modern Languages, and a Master of Arts in Mediterranean Studies.
Doctor of Modern Languages: The Doctor of Modern Languages (DML) degree program, established in 1927, is unique to Middlebury College and reflects our commitment to the promotion of excellence in second-language acquisition, literature, linguistics, and language pedagogy.
The DML, offered in French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish, prepares teachers and scholars in two modern foreign languages, including the literature, linguistics and culture associated with each. Five Doctor of Modern Languages degrees were awarded at commencement in August; 40 have been awarded since 2001, the majority in French and Spanish.
MA in Mediterranean Studies: Focused on explorations of France, Spain, and Italy, the Master of Arts in Mediterranean Studies allows students to combine study in a primary and a secondary language as they explore the history and culture of this diverse, vital, and influential region.
Students complete the MA in Mediterranean Studies in a combination of summers in Vermont and semesters in one of the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad. Applicants to the program must be able to demonstrate graduate-level proficiency in both languages.
