Master of Arts in Language, Literature, and Translation

Ponte Sant'Angelo and St. Peter's BasilicaAll foreign languages taught at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are part of a combined Masters Program: Master of Arts in Language, Literature, and Translation (MALLT). UWM’s three language departments (Foreign Languages; French, Italian, and Comparative Literature; and Spanish and Portuguese) are all part of this program.

Of the language programs offered in our department, Masters degrees are regularly given in German and Classics, and occasionally have been granted in Russian and Hebrew Studies. The basis of the program is language and literature study, but recently a Graduate Certificate in Translation has been established in the MALLT program.

There are on-going negotiations with the School of Education for establishing a Master of Arts in Teaching collaboratively between MALLT and the School of Education. Once that is established, information about it will appear here, as well.
