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


Course Description

Want to further your career in language teaching? Learn the latest linguistics theories and apply them to your classroom practice. Gain critical and analytical skills that will boost your career prospects. Choose to study by distance learning or in Cambridge, a city famous for language teaching.

Overview

If you’re involved with any aspect of foreign language teaching, this course will further your theoretical understanding of language learning and give you a chance to develop your teaching skills.

You’ll gain a firm grounding in the current theories and methodologies of foreign language teaching and learning, and second language acquisition, and have the chance to apply these to your own classroom practice and curriculum development.

You’ll learn the basics of conducting research, and improve the critical and analytical skills in demand from employers. Our modules will also allow you to investigate other issues of language, like migration or identity.

Outside of the course, you’ll have the chance to attend, and take part in, our research seminars and conferences, like the Identities in Language conference, or the British Association for Applied Linguistics conference 2016.

Course duration: 13 months full-time, 2 years part-time (September starts); 18 months full-time, 28 months part-time (January starts)
