The mission of the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics, as an institution of higher education, is to provide training and research opportunities leading to graduate degrees in Applied Linguistics, Language and Culture Studies, and World Arts. Program under development: The Abraham Center for Muslim and Islamic Studies. GIAL seeks to be more than just a graduate school, however. Our goal is to provide training for missionaries that will help them be more effective in their life and ministry overseas. We are motivated not by our school’s achievements, but by the impact our alumni are making in minority language communities around the world.
