Graduate Programs

​​​​​The Department of Modern Languages is currently only accepting students in the French and Spanish MA 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, business people, or licensed K-12 teachers) whose careers require this applied expertise.
