Program Description: At USF, our Linguistics and TESL programs are among the oldest in the Sunshine State and are known for more than its age-they are known for the quality of our graduates. Our students are prepared for positions teaching second languages to non-native speakers, whether adults or children. Our alumni have taught in six continents, in public and private institutes, here in the Tampa Bay area and around the world. Other graduates have continued their graduate education and earned doctoral degrees. Many of our alumni hold positions of leadership.
Available Financial Aid: An assistantship in our department, World Languages, is a possibility for Linguistics students. For example, students who are native or proficient speakers of world languages might be hired to teach an undergraduate language course. There are also a wide variety of other funding opportunities including working in tutoring/writing centers and for other academic units on campus.

Most of our M.A. students teach in the INTO USF English Language Program during their second internship. This position generally provides a tuition waiver and a stipend.
