Academic Program

The DML program includes graduate-level courses in both the principal and secondary languages, comprehensive exams in the principal language, documentation of residency abroad and teaching experience, and a dissertation and oral defense.

Students admitted to the DML program beginning in summer 2013 will fulfill new DML degree requirements. The new program adds an introduction to pedagogy, a teaching practicum, and training in research methodology as a component of dissertation advising.

Students admitted to the DML program in summer 2012 may choose to complete the requirements in place for summer 2012 and earlier or may choose to complete the new requirements. This is a one-time choice. Once a student has selected the requirements they wish to fulfill, they cannot change back. This choice should be made in consultation with the director for the student's primary DML language.
