Starting on a graduate program is generally difficult, but starting after a long absence from the academic world or without a solid grasp on the vocabulary or expectations of the class makes obtaining a master’s nearly impossible. Pathway programs are made to help bridge that gap so students can begin their graduate programs quickly.
So, what is a graduate pathway in languages, and is it right for you? A pathway program is perfect for students looking to get a Masters in Languages or who are hoping to begin work in the languages field. Courses vary by university, but often a pathway program in languages will include English, writing, and advanced grammar to bring students up to speed with the academic topics used in the study of languages or linguistics.
Being able to effectively communicate in English is beneficial for non-native speakers whether they’re in school or talking to coworkers. A pathway program gives learners the tools to be able to discuss specific topics in linguistics and pass rigorous academic standards.
A pathway program often lasts only about a year and can save time and money by providing the skills needed to pass lower-level courses. Prices vary between universities, but a pathway program is often much cheaper than failing beginner classes due to a lack of vocabulary.
Students who are hoping to get into the fields of international communication, bilingual publishing, translation, or teaching foreign languages can boost their job potential with a Masters in Languages. Many pathway programs result in acceptance into master’s programs, but even if a student isn’t planning on getting a graduate degree, simply completing a pathway program gives job seekers a competitive edge.
Many universities worldwide offer a graduate pathway in languages. For convenience, these courses are often available online as well as in person. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
