    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.

    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.
