MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with Applied Linguistics


Course Description

This postgraduate degree course will equip you with a thorough grounding in teaching methodology, classroom management, an in-depth knowledge of lexis, grammar and phonology, and the way in which language is learned. It will also help you to develop the analytical and reflective skills you need to continue to develop as a professional.

You will be taught by people who are both academic researchers, practitioners and teacher-trainers in their own right. We have a range of experience in a number of teaching contexts around the world.

You will complete a 15,000 word dissertation on a topic which you have a desire to investigate and will be encouraged to present your findings at UCLan postgraduate conferences, in refereed journals and at international conferences in the field, such as IATEFL and NATESOL.

We currently have graduates working in ELT positions in a variety of countries, including the UK, Japan, Malaysia, China, Thailand and Saudi Arabia. We have a well-established network of alumni and are able to put students in contact with graduates around the world. We also regularly offer work opportunities within the UCLan Language Academy or at partner institutions.
