MA TESOL and Applied Linguistics

MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Applied Linguistics is an exciting and innovative new course that will equip you with essential skills, giving you a competitive edge in the global jobs market, providing career development for new and experienced teachers alike.

Through a range of core and optional units, you will learn how languages work, how they are learnt, how to teach effectively, how to test, how to design courses and the research skills essential for success on a postgraduate programme.

Through assessments that are designed to be interesting, varied and practical, as well as teaching development opportunities ranging from voluntary teaching practice to observation of our Language Centre classes, this course will help prepare you to be professionally placed in multiple education environments, or if you choose, to continue further postgraduate study.

MA Linguistics and English Language

Attracting students from all over the world, this versatile, interdisciplinary MA in Linguistics and English Language aims to provide a solid understanding of the basis of language and linguistics and develop a valuable insight into the relationship between language, culture and society.

The course emphasises the practical application of theories to the social context and aims to enhance your analytical and linguistic skills by introducing different approaches to the analysis of language use. The majority of our academics are actively involved in current research and they bring this experience to the classroom, using it to inform their teaching and ensuring up-to-date, relevant content on all the course units, delivered by published experts in the field.

MA Linguistics and English Studies

MA Linguistics and English Studies is designed to cater to students with interests across linguistics, literature and film, and makes use of structures, staff and units from MA Linguistics and English Language and MA English Studies. The majority of the staff have internationally recognised academic expertise in their specialist areas. There are two paths through the course, both with elements of internal choice, offering students considerable freedom in choosing a path which matches their interests.
