No matter which cultural setting you’re in, communication is key to effective work and ministry. The Department of Applied Linguistics & TESOL (ALT) seeks to equip students to be good communicators across cultural barriers. Whether your ultimate goal is to teach English, study linguistics, or translate the Bible into a new language, Cook’s ALT department will give you the skills you need to be a competent cultural communicator.

The ALT department also sponsors the new International Journal of Christianity and English Language Teaching.
