Master of Applied Linguistics

Course Description

The Master of Applied Linguistics trains you to apply your knowledge of language in a diverse range of contexts, including translation, journalism and media, language policy and planning, website design and socio-educational development.

This course is also suitable for people involved in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), second language teaching (SLT), and the teaching of modern languages. We teach via both traditional face-to-face and computer assisted methodologies.

At the end of this course, you will look at the world with new eyes. You will learn to analyse texts that you encounter in your everyday and professional lives, and will be able to apply this knowledge for a range of purposes.

Many units of study in this program are informed by systemic functional linguistics and the ground-breaking, internationally recognised literacy initiatives in primary, secondary, tertiary and adult education of the ‘Sydney School’ (the name given to the group of linguists and educators who designed and implemented genre-based literacy programs).

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences has a wide range of academic expertise in applied linguistics with particular strengths in World Englishes, the politics of English language teaching, media discourse, critical discourse analysis and emerging electronic modalities of communication, for example, news websites, blogs, chat rooms, YouTube, Facebook and MySpace.

Eligible students will also have the option of undertaking a dissertation on an approved topic over two units of study.
