Welcome to SLAT
The SLAT Program is recognized nationally as a superior interdisciplinary program. It is designed to provide rigorous advanced training for researchers, teachers, and administrators concerned with second language learning and teaching.
SLAT has an interdisciplinary focus
Welcome to the Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT) Ph.D. program at the University of Arizona! SLAT is home to some of the most innovative and creative work around teaching multiple languages to multiple types of students in multiple contexts. We hope you will find resources throughout this site to explore opportunities to apply to study with us or to start a collaborative research partnership or engagement initiative with us.
I invite you to explore this website. For a quick reference, you may download our SLAT PhD Program brochure. I encourage you to reach out to us by emailing your questions and ideas to SLAT's Program Coordinator, Debbie Shon Buhler, or to me.
