The Department of Literature and Language currently offers three programs in graduate study. We offer a Master's Degree in Literature for those interested in teaching English and literature at the college and university level. If you need information about the graduate program in English for the ETSU Department of Literature and Language, please contact Dr. Katherine Weiss, our department's Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies.
We also offer a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, a program intended for those who wish to teach English abroad or to non-native adult speakers in the United States. The graduate-level certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languagese can be obtained independently or in conjunction with the MA in English. The TESOL Certificate requires eighteen credits, nine of which can overlap with the MA credits; typically, only one extra semester of study is involved. For specific TESOL Certificate requirements, contact Dr. Theresa McGarry and see the TESOL homepage.
We also offer a graduate certificate in Health Care Translation and Interpreting. Those interested in the Health Care Translation and Interpreting program should contact. Dr. Ardis Nelson.
