This depends on the program.
For MA English Online, MLS and foreign language reading knowledge courses (FRE 550, GER 550, SPA 550, ITA 550) are allowed. FMS courses may also be taken as electives, but they are within the English Department. It may also be possible to take courses in other departments (such as education, art history, etc), and request that these be evaluated for inclusion in the degree. We evaluate these courses on an individual basis. The program allows 6 elective credits to be taken outside of the department.
For the MAS program, FMS courses are the priority. Any other courses will need to be evaluated. Please contact your acadmic advisor.
MTESOL Online allows 9 credit hours to consist of other LIN courses, or with prior approval, ENG courses or courses outside the English department (e.g., education, school of international letters and cultures, speech and hearing science, psychology).
