English Language Teaching MA

Course Description

The English Language Teaching MA is aimed at language specialists worldwide; native or non-native speakers of English. It is ideal for those who have previous experience of English Language Teaching (ELT) and/or research in this discipline.

The course explores contemporary research issues and a variety of teaching methodologies in ELT, and gives you the opportunity to broaden your understanding of the theoretical and practical issues that ELT teachers and learners face in the classroom.

While focusing on research trends and issues, this MA is designed to improve your opportunities for teaching English language in a variety of different situations, both in the UK and abroad. It differs from many other master's degrees as it includes a mix of practical and theoretical subjects that will be useful for English language teachers.

You will be taught in excellent classroom facilities within our Centre for English Language Learning, which is accredited by the British Council. Taught modules will require preparatory reading and weekly attendance over two terms. Formal classroom contact will normally include a two-hour session per week, per module, and will take the form of a workshop. This may require attendance at the university for up to three days a week.

All members of the English language department are highly qualified and experienced and bring a truly international dimension to their teaching.

The course is designed primarily to enhance your potential and future career prospects in English Language Teaching and further ELT research. Graduates have gone on to be a director of studies, web based teacher and designer, ESP trainer
for multinational companies, materials and resource designer and a one-to-one tutor.
