UWM Graduate School Bulletin

MALLT Graduate Program

MALLT focuses on language, literature, and translation as areas of academic investigation broader than national and linguistic borders, and encourages the study of language and literature on a cross-cultural basis as an integrated field of inquiry.

The standard 30-credit program, which you design in consultation with your Major Professor, includes:

Interdisciplinary Core Seminars

Two interdisciplinary Core Seminars (6 cr) providing a theoretical and methodological background for more intensive study in your chosen area of concentration. Two to three seminars are offered each semester.

Core Seminar Rotation:

  • Every Fall: MALLT 708; MALLT 740 or 741; COMPLIT 820
  • Every Spring: MALLT 709 (In odd years this course is offered in Spanish only. In even years it is offered in French, German, Spanish, and other languages by request.)
  • Alternate years in Spring: MALLT 704, 706, 707

Areas of Concentration

Five to Eight courses in an Area of Concentration (15-24 cr)

Courses in Related Fields

Up to three courses in Related Academic Fields (9 cr) of your choice that are outside of your concentration and consonant with your professional goals.

For example:

  • Second language acquisition theory
  • foreign language pedagogy
  • language and/or literature
  • Comparative Literature
  • History, Art History, Women’s Studies, Liberal Studies, or related field

But you may choose to take some or all of these 9 credits in your concentration.
