tesolin4languages Posted June 3, 2013 Share Posted June 3, 2013 Dear friends: I am a person that is dreaming about getting a PhD one day. However, I know the apparent perils of doing so (little jobs, as evidenced by the chronicle's many articles on the subject). So my questions are as follows: 1) What are the best ESL / Foreign language programs out there? 2) I am very scared that getting a TESOL PhD or a second language acquisition PhD is too narrow. I've taken a look at my previous professors in my master's program (I hold an MS in Education and TESOL from the University of Rochester) and they all have very broad PhD's, such as Teaching and Curriculum, or even just education, or perhaps Higher Education. Am I right in being scared? Also, I don't like the cold much, and it would definitely affect my decision. The hotter the better! Now, my plan is to get more experience because I want to get a tuition waiver and a stipend. I know I am asking for a lot. With that said, my third question is: 3) While I know that some schools grant stipends and tuition waivers, do you know of any very reputable institution waive all/or most of the tuition? (I have a BA in Intercultural and Organizational Communication, 3.7GPA; and an MS in Education and TESOL (3.999GPA). If you need more information, please don't hesitate to ask! Thanks so much for being of help. I truly appreciate your time! DMC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
