Overview

The Departments of Foreign Languages and Literature, of French, Italian and Comparative Literature, and of Spanish and Portuguese — under the guidance of a Coordinating Committee — cooperate in offering an interdepartmental, interdisciplinary master's program designed for the student who wishes to focus on language and literature as areas of study broader than national or linguistic borders and to study language, literature, and translation on a cross-cultural basis. Students may complete one of the following concentrations: Classical Greek; Classics; Comparative Literature; French and Francophone Language, Literature, and Culture; German Language, Literature, and Culture; Latin; Linguistics; Spanish and Hispanophone Language, Literature, and Culture; Translation Professional Track; and Translation Research Track. In addition to these specific concentrations, students may pursue course work in Hebrew Studies, Italian Studies, and Slavic Languages.

Inquiries concerning this program should be directed to the Coordinator of the Language, Literature, and Translation program.

Admission

An applicant must meet Graduate School requirements plus these program requirements to be considered for admission to the program:

  1. Knowledge of a language other than English. Entrance competencies for specific concentrations are as follows:
    • Language concentrations: an undergraduate major in the language, or comparable background, such as coursework, a significant immersion experience, or native fluency combined with appropriate academic training.
    • Translation tracks: competence on a qualifying examination.
    • Comparative Literature concentration: an undergraduate major in comparative literature, including advanced study of a language other than English, or equivalent literary and language preparation.
    • Linguistics concentration: an undergraduate major in linguistics or in a related field, such as English, a foreign language, psychology, philosophy, or anthropology; and at least a basic-level familiarity with a language other than English, as evidenced by coursework, immersion experience or native fluency.
  2. Submission to the MALLT Program of three letters of recommendation, at least two of which should be from instructors acquainted with the student's academic work.
  3. Submission to the MALLT Program of a well-developed statement of approximately 500 words outlining the applicant's academic background and interests, reasons for graduate study in the MALLT program, intended concentration and professional goals.

Applicants who meet general Graduate School requirements (an undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.75) and the above program requirements may be admitted in good standing.

Upon recommendation of the Coordinating Committee, an applicant lacking in course background may be admitted with specified deficiencies in the above on the condition that the deficiencies be made up by the end of the first full semester (9-12 credits). Credits earned in making up deficiencies do not count toward the degree. If an applicant furnishes substantial evidence of capacity to do satisfactory graduate work despite a deficiency in GPA on admission, probationary admission may be recommended.

Transfer of Credits

Any course submitted for transfer must be no more than five years old at the time of the student's admission to the MALLT Program, must have been taken at the graduate level in a recognized institution, and must have been completed with a grade of B or better. Since Graduate School regulations allow the transfer of only 12 non-degree graduate credits to a master's program, students are advised to apply for degree candidacy in the MALLT program before completion of 12 credits of course work.

Major Professor as Advisor

The student must have a major professor to advise and supervise the student's studies as specified in Graduate School regulations.

The Coordinating Committee refers each incoming student to a temporary advisor, normally the Graduate Advisor in the student's chosen concentration, as stated in the application. The Graduate Advisor assists in assessing the student's competencies, interests, and future academic or professional needs. Normally, the Graduate Advisor recommends a Major Professor after his/her initial meeting with the student.

The Major Professor and the student establish a plan of study by the end of the student's first semester of graduate work. The plan will be reviewed by the Major Professor and the student after the successful completion of 12 credits and the removal of any deficiencies that may have been assessed at admission. At the time of the review, the student may request another Major Professor in the event that his/her programmatic needs have been modified or altered. Subsequent minor changes must be approved by the Major Professor.

The Major Professor evaluates and updates the student's progress after completion of every six (6) credits or every semester of subsequent work. The student may not register for any courses without this advisor's prior approval.

Credits and Courses

No credits carrying a grade below B- may be counted toward meeting the MALLT degree requirement of 30 credits.

The MALLT degree offers two tracks: the Standard Track within which students may complete one of eight concentrations and the Translation track, which will be designated as a concentration on the student's transcript. Students are not obligated to elect a concentration, but many will find it beneficial to do so. They also have the option of completing two concentrations, but, in doing so, students must complete all requirements for each concentration and a minimum of 36 credits for the degree.

Standard Track

Thirty graduate credits are required, 6 of which must be in core seminars in the language, literature, and linguistics areas. The student develops a program of study in consultation with the Major Professor, normally including the following:

  1. Two core seminars as a foundation in basic aspects of languages, literatures, and linguistics.
  2. Five to eight courses in a language, literature, or linguistics area to permit concentration in the student's major area of interest.
  3. Up to three courses in related areas to give the program breadth.

The following are the minimum course requirements for a concentration within the Standard Track:

  • Classical Greek: at least 15 graduate credits in Greek
  • Classics: at least 18 credits of graduate-level course work consisting of an equal number of credits in classical Greek and in Latin
  • Comparative Literature: at least 15 graduate credits in Comparative Literature
  • French and Francophone Language, Literature, and Culture: at least 15 graduate credits in French
  • German Language, Literature, and Culture: at least 15 graduate credits in German
  • Latin: at least 15 graduate credits in Latin
  • Linguistics: the two core seminars selected from Linguis 708(701), MALLT 706, CurrIns 800, and Philos 681; five courses in Linguis, including 460, 464, and three additional linguistics courses in or outside the Department of Linguistics; 9 cr electives selected in consultation with the student's advisor (may include up to 6 cr in MALLT 790 Thesis)
  • Spanish and Hispanophone Language, Literature, and Culture: at least 15 graduate credits in Spanish

MALLT/MLIS Coordinated Degree Program

Go back to the top

In cooperation with the School of Information Studies, the College of Letters & Science offers a MALLT/MLIS program to prepare students for specialized positions in libraries. Students enrolled in this program will concurrently pursue a M.A. degree in Language, Literature, and Translation and a MLIS degree. Candidates for the coordinated degree program will be expected to fulfill the degree requirements of both graduate programs. Degrees will be awarded simultaneously.

Students interested in the MALLT/MLIS program will be expected to follow all of the requirements and standards as described in this section of the Bulletin. Nine of the 30 credits normally required for a MALLT degree will be satisfied by courses taken in SOIS. In the coordinated degree program, MALLT thesis option credits will be in addition to the 21 required MALLT credits. Courses in related areas must be approved by the Coordinator of MALLT.
