General Information

Each semester we will have about 12 5000-level classes that will count toward your electives.  We will also offer MENG 6410 Strat/Methods of Teaching ESL, MENG 6420 Phology & Syntax for ESL, and MENG 6450 ESL/Bilingal Assessment on a rotation.

Registration hints can be found at http://www.weber.edu/registration.

The syllabi above may be modified as the faculty see fit, but this gives you an idea of how the class is structured and what you can anticipate.  If you have any specific questions, follow the link in the purple bar to the "Faculty Listing."  You'll find email and phone.  (I'd try email.  It gets checked even when the faculty are out of the office.)

Keep in mind that nine credit hours of 5000-level classes will count toward electives.  Just make sure you take something new; don't repeat a class you had in your undergrad.

If you have any questions about requirements, check Cat Tracks in the student portal.  If you still have questions email masterofenglish@weber.edu or phone us at 801.626.7179. 

Enjoy your classes!
