The Master of Science in Applied Languages and Intercultural Studies (MS-ALIS) emphasizes the real-world professional applications of language for a wide range of career paths, from communications and non-profit to business, engineering, and medicine.
In addition to rigorous training in advanced-level language and cross-cultural communication, students have the opportunity to go abroad to study, do research, and complete for-credit internships. Students graduate with a professional portfolio in the language of concentration, positioning them to pursue a range of internationally oriented career paths.
At Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) the MS-ALIS is a flexible program that can be completed in as few as 3 semesters or part-time over a longer period. To graduate, students must earn 30 credit hours at the 6000+ level and present a professional portfolio in the target language that demonstrates advanced-level competence in the language and culture of focus (completed in LANG 6503: Professional Portfolio during the final semester of study).
