Creating Student Options for Graduate Instruction at the University of Georgia.
Walz, Joel C.
This paper describes a new degree option for the M.A. in French that was developed in response to declining graduate enrollment and complaints that the traditional study of literature is not relevant to future teachers at the high school and junior college level. The program fits into existing rules for the M.A. in literature and was based on existing courses. The rules remain flexible enough for the student to concentrate on either historical or applied linguistics. Students adopting this option must take five of the eight courses in language and linguistics, write a thesis on a linguistic topic, and pass an oral exam on a reading list. The written description of the program given to all incoming graduate students and the reading list are attached as appendices. It is hoped that this report will serve as a model for other institutions wishing to diversify their options. (Author/AMH)
