Boston University's Master of Education (EdM) in World Language Education provides advanced study for practicing educators who already hold teaching licensure (Advancing Educators) and for pre-service educators aspiring to teach in adult, international, or private school settings (Aspiring Educators).


Key facts

This program does not lead to licensure, and students seeking licensure at the 5–12 level should apply for the MAT in Modern Foreign Language Education.

Boston University's Master of Education (EdM) in World Language Education is designed as a 12-month, full-time or part-time program that may begin in June or September each year. The EdM in World Language Education is designed for both Aspiring and Advancing Educators. Aspiring world language educators complete a student-teaching practicum as part of their program to provide structured support to prepare them as classroom teachers. Advancing world language educators complete a field experience course in which they are observed in their own classroom, receive structured feedback and coaching on their teaching, and prepare a portfolio demonstrating professional standards of effective world language teaching.
