More about this course

The Teaching Languages (Arabic) MA course will deepen your understanding of the fundamental disciplinary areas of the Arabic language, culture, pedagogy and linguistics, while also focusing on more specific theoretical and practical themes. These include key areas such as Arabic language awareness, Arab cultures, concepts and issues in language learning, language assessment and testing, and materials design for teaching Arabic.

The unique structure of the course will help develop your professional and academic interests through wide reading, guided discussion and supported research, encouraging you to develop the abilities necessary to become highly skilled and globally employable Arabic language teachers, policy makers, educators and researchers.

The lecturers teaching on the course have long-term experiences in teaching in different contexts, are research active and have publications in the subject area.

With its international orientation, the degree explores cultural, educational, political, linguistic and other contexts in which the Arabic language is learned, taught and used worldwide. It will enable you to become both more reflexive and reflective in your practice and encourages you to think of yourself as an Arabic language professional with a strong contribution to make in the field.
