Congratulations to Samanta de Frutos García, who finished her PhD in Winter 2023 with an Emphasis in Applied Linguistics! She is currently a Lecturer at Cypress College. Dr. de Frutos will be presenting her research at the Spring 23 colloquium on Wednesday April 17, 2023.
Completing the emphasis in Applied Linguistics allowed me to take courses focusing on language learning and teaching theories and practices with dedicated and inspiring faculty. The Emphasis also offered me opportunities to connect and collaborate with graduate students and stay up-to-date in recent and future research and practices in the field of second language acquisition by attending colloquiums. The emphasis in Applied Linguistics has been an excellent addition to my Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literatures and adds great value to my professional career.
