MA in Applied Linguistics for English Language Teaching

Course Description


The aim of the programme is to provide a broad-based Masters in English (TESOL) language education informed by theoretical and practical concerns. The programme does not offer a language teaching qualification; it does offer advanced inquiry into the processes of language learning, with specific reference to second language learning. Applications are welcome from both home and international students.
Applicants are strongly advised to ensure that they submit applications no later than 1 September if they wish to begin a course of study beginning in the same year. No guarantee can be offered that applications received after this date will be processed for a September start date.
Overseas applicants are also advised to check how long it is likely to take for their visa to be processed and to allow sufficient time in order that they are able to begin their programme of study on time.

Students will complete:

*four assessed coursework essay assignments (each 4,000 to 5,000 words in length)
*an exam in Research Methods in Language Learning and Teaching
*an assessed presentation + dissertation outline + ethics audit
*a dissertation of 12,000 words based on a small-scale research study
