Graduate Programs

DePaul's innovative new MA programs in Modern Languages provide students with a customizable, flexible curriculum to develop advanced linguistic and cultural expertise in a language and to apply that expertise in the disciplinary or professional contexts of their choice.  Whether in the global village of today's world or in multiethnic communities such as Chicago, this advanced expertise is an increasingly valuable personal and professional asset, requiring appropriate training and credentials. The MA programs especially seek to serve adult professionals (government employees, social workers, healthcare providers, businesspeople, or certified K-12 teachers) whose careers require this applied expertise.

For a list of the courses students in the graduate program might complete, please check our course catalog.  All of our 300-level undergraduate courses are cross-listed with our 400-level graduate courses. The 400-level language courses are the courses which our language graduate students would complete.  All courses listed in the course catalog are not offered every term or year, so students should check in with the program director of each language program for more class scheduling details.​
