For teachers of English and of other modern languages, an MA in Applied Linguistics extends their knowledge of language and language teaching.
It provides participants with the opportunity to explore new developments in language teaching research and to reflect on that in the light of their own practical expertise and knowledge.
Why St Mary's?
The MA in Applied Linguistics and ELT programme at St Mary’s has been running for more than 25 years and has helped develop the careers of hundreds of professionals in language teaching, management, publishing and research.
This is a course with committed lecturers engaging with small groups, usually no more than 10-12 in each year. Compared to many other MA programmes in the UK this is a very low number and we have deliberately kept it small in order to keep the quality of our teaching high. We know all our students by name, and are able to give them a lot of individual attention and support.
We examine not only the subject of teaching, but also the nature of language from diverse theoretical, social and cognitive perspectives.
The content is demanding, but support is also strong. The rewards for students is great, both in how they learn to think about language and in their careers.
Doing the MA at St Mary's proved to be a huge leap forward in my ELT career both academically and professionally. It opened many doors for me from starting to teach applied linguistics at universities to managing EFL projects at national level in Chile where I live. The quality and variety of the MA course modules will prepare you well for your future.
You should have a first degree with at least second-class honours, plus three years professional experience in education.We will also consider applications from graduates without the full three years’ professional experience if their first degree is in a subject related to applied linguistics.Applicants for whom English is not a first language need to have an overall IELTS score of 6.5, with at least 6.5 in writing. We take into account whether you have studied through the medium of English before, either at school or university.
