This programme provides English language teachers and graduates with relevant teaching experience and a deeper understanding of the field of English Language Teaching (ELT). In addition to specific topics, the programme provides an overview of the theoretical, philosophical and ethical principles that underpin educational research, and introduces you to the theory and practice of action research. The MA ELT is available in face-to-face, distance and blended learning modes.
The MA ELT consists of four modules and a dissertation which includes research methods training. The programme has a strong action research focus which will enable students to carry out classroom-based research projects. In addition, the role of materials is considered at all levels of theory and practice.
The programme is designed to be flexible and compatible with the lives of working teachers. For this reasons students may opt to begin the programme in September or February. The MA is full-time over one year, although some students may wish to study part-time – in which case modules may be spread over six years in consultation with the programme leader.
Students who have accumulated 60 credits by completing two modules may be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate, and students who have accumulated 120 credits by completing four modules may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma. The MA is awarded to students who have accumulated 180 credits by completing all four modulesand the dissertation.
