Become an expert in foreign language education.
Our Master of Education (MEd) in World and Heritage Language Education (WHLE) provides advanced study in foreign language education. Our students include current teachers seeking continuing education as well as international students who are interested in teaching English in their home country or staying in the United States to teach their native language.
Students have the option of combining our MEd degree with two specializations:
- K-12 English as a Second Language (ESL) state endorsement
- Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) certificate from Pitt
Courses in the MEd in WHLE program implement a practice-based approach to enhance students’ knowledge of the application of teaching strategies essential to the field of foreign language education.
