Take your career to the next level

With Massey’s Master of Applied Linguistics, you’ll help make second-language teaching work in a multilingual world.

The Master of Applied Linguistics provides professionals in all areas of second-language teaching, including Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), with a qualification that meets their specific combination of professional and research needs. This combination is increasingly important in both domestic and international settings.

Get real-world skills

You’ll use theories, methods and problem-based approaches that address real-world language issues. The Master of Applied Linguistics focuses on second-language acquisition and language use in an increasingly globalised and digitally mediated world.

Explore areas such as contextually relevant teaching of languages, reflective practices to enhance teaching and learning, and the sociocultural demands of language learning and teaching.

Research opportunities

Master’s study includes a research component. On the Master of Applied Linguistics you’ll complete a research report (60 credits) or thesis (120 credits). Recent areas of student research include:

  • Investigating needs of non-income earning students in community English classes
  • The development of teacher identity among student teachers in Thailand
  • Navigating cultural conflict and dissonance in the immigrant ESL classroom
  • The role of motivational beliefs in self-regulated learning for Kanji acquisition
  • Vocational tertiary students’ imagined experiences of learning English with native speakers in an Indonesian rural setting
  • Perceptions of Bhutanese students, parents and teachers of their learning progress in a New Zealand secondary school
  • A case study of teacher beliefs and student attitudes on L1 use in multilingual classrooms
