This exciting new programme is offered fully online and is aimed at experienced English Language Teachers and other English language professionals. Read more
This exciting new programme is offered fully online and is aimed at experienced English Language Teachers and other English language professionals. The main focus of the course will be on the use and teaching of the English language in a global context. This focus will address an international need for professional development, especially among teachers of English. The Masters in Applied Linguistics aims to provide a broad-based course of study in language description (language systems: grammar, lexis and phonology), theories of Applied Linguistics, frameworks for the study of discourse, as well as specialist research skills for the empirical analysis of language in context. The course will run over three semesters (one and a half years). Semesters 1 and 2 will involve taught modules (online lectures and activities). Semester 3 will be dedicated to the writing of a 20,000 word dissertation.

Each semester will be structured into 12 weeks or units. Each semester, you will take three modules. The weekly contact hours will be divided between live webcasts/webinars and participation in a range of online tasks, including discussion forums, quizzes, wikis and online tutorials. Each module will involve ongoing assessment. This may involve a mixture of tasks such as online quizzes, online discussions and wikis, uploading and sharing of work to our online virtual learning environment, essays, oral presentations, etc.

The aims of the MA in Applied Linguistics are to:
●enhance the professional knowledge of English Language Teachers and language professionals by focusing on the core features of language (grammar, lexis and phonology);
●develop participants’ ability to utilise theoretical frameworks for the analysis of discourse to enhance their ability to address specific language-related real-world problems concerning the learning, use, teaching and assessment of language;
●provide a broad understanding of the key issues and debates in language teaching and learning;
●develop specialist skills in the empirical analysis of language in context using corpus linguistics.

This programme introduces students to the central concepts and the analytic techniques of general linguistics and phonetics - the scientific study of the human faculty of language. It is designed so that it requires no previous study of linguistics. The course involves the study both of theoretical models of language, and of the techniques of the linguistic and phonetic description of a wide range of languages. Students take six modules and undertake a research project leading to a 15,000 word dissertation. Four core modules are mandatory and two are elective options.

The aims of the course are to provide qualified speech and language therapists with opportunities to advance their academic knowledge and professional practice skills with specific clinical populations. These courses provide additional specialist qualifications to qualified speech and language therapists and do not serve as initial qualifications to practise as a speech and language therapist. The two year part time M.Sc. course takes place during twelve 5-day weeks spread over a 2 year period. There is an opportunity for students taking the Dysphagia specialist strand to do a one-year full time course. This course takes place during twelve 5-day weeks spread over one year. All students must attend Trinity College for these teaching weeks. Additional assignments and clinical work must be completed outside of these weeks. . During the M.Sc. course, students must complete a minimum of 80 hours clinical work in the chosen specialist area. Students who take the dysphagia specialist strand and who have not completed a qualifying course in dysphagia will have to complete an additional intensive week of study. These students must have at least 40 of the required 80 clinical hours supervised by speech and language therapists recognised by the Department. Students should organise their own clinical work prior to commencing the course but must ensure that, where supervision is required, proposed supervisors have been agreed with the department. For the part time M.Sc course, core and specialist modules are taught during Year 1; research project and dissertation are the main focus in Year 2. For full time students core modules and a dissertation are completed in one year. Classes are timetabled to facilitate clinicians in employment and overseas students.

Specialist Strands offered for 2014/2015

Acquired Communication Disorders- Dysphagia *- Developmental Communication Disorders- Fluency- Voice- Augmentative and Alternative Communication- Communication Disorders and Adult Mental Health

Each specialist strand will only run if a minimum of five students registers for that strand.

The course comprises core modules on dysphagia incorporating basic research methods, evidence based practice, counselling, therapy processes and reflective practice. Students must also complete 80 hours of clinical practice. Those students who have not completed a qualifying course in dysphagia must complete an additional one week introductory course and undertake a minimum of 40 hours supervised clinical work in dysphagia (with experienced supervisors to be recognised by the Department). Students are expected to organise these clinical hours prior to registration on the course. Students should ensure that proposed supervisors have been agreed with the department.
