The MA draws on expertise from two departments, the Department of Educational Studies and the Department of English and Comparative Literature, to offer students a wide-ranging interdisciplinary programme. The programme is targeted at students working or planning to work in education in diverse contexts, and those interested in exploring intercultural and multilingual communication.
It'll be of particular interest if you have or wish to gain experience in teaching second and foreign languages (for example in multilingual classrooms, in bilingual education settings internationally, or English as a foreign language) and aim to achieve a wider theoretical knowledge base. This MA will add value to your professional life, whether as managers, teachers or researchers, or in other careers related to language and education.

You complete two compulsory modules, two option modules and a 15,000-word dissertation.
