The MA in Applied Linguistics is intended for anyone interested in the application of language research to language pedagogy, and for teachers of English who wish to upgrade their professional standing. We provide a set of interactive course materials for working professionals to complete in part-time, self-study mode over a period of at least 30 months.

The programme includes six taught modules and a 15,000-word dissertation.

You will take four core modules:
