    Academic Regalia for TESOL

    I am in a TESOL MA program. 2-3 years ago my university gave white hoods at graduation when the lead professor had a degree in applied linguistics. Now the new lead professor has a doctorate in language education and they give light blue hoods. Most similar programs give white hoods at graduation. Should I really be getting a white hood? Does this have to do with the degree of the lead professor?

    The color of the lining of the hood for a Masters Degree should be solely determined by the Field itself. White is for Arts, Light Blue is for Education . I have never heard of Linguistics being in any other department than Education . You should have a Light Blue Hood.

    Agreed, I'd expect someone whose highest or most recent degree was in TESOL to wear a light blue hood.
    BS, Info Sys concentration, Charter Oak State College
    MA in Educational Tech, George Washington University
    PhD in Leadership, U. of the Cumberlands (in progress)

    I laughed when I saw this. I never knew there was a universal system. I guess I just thought each school had it's own color coding.
