below is a list of programs with an outline of sample courses offered. This is not a complete list;
please let us know of other programs available. Most schools require 2-3 letters of recommendation,

If you're interested in EFL graduate programs, the November 1994 issue of The Language Teacher has a list of courses you can do while in Japan. Most schools listed here require residency.
