Elms College plays host to Fulbright Language Teaching Assistants who bring their language and cultural knowledge to our students. Our instructors are Fulbright Scholars and passionate world-travelers and educators who have many unique experiences to share with our students. Each FLTA spends one year at Elms College.
In the past we have hosted FLTAs from Morocco, Ireland, and Japan. 2012 graduate David Peters was the first Elms College student to earn an FLTA post in Taiwan. During the 2012-2013 academic year, Elms College will host two FLTAs - Ciara Cosgrove from Ireland and Yu Katsurashima from Japan. Ciara will teach novice and intermediate courses in the Irish language, and Yu will teach a novice course in the Japanese language and assist with a course on Japanese culture.
We invite all our students to take a class with our visting FLTAs, and to get to know them at our many international events.
We are a Catholic liberal arts college founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts.
