The overall aim of this MA is to provide advanced training in applied linguistics or language in education to professionals with language interests, typically language teachers in schools, further and higher education. We aim to provide this training in an integrated manner, both to professionals with interests in UK-based education, and those operating internationally. You will develop a comparative perspective on language education policy and practice; learn the skills needed to challenge professional practice; and undertake research and innovation in a range of applied language fields.
This programme is divided into 180 credits. 120 credits are obtained from taught modules with the remaining 60 credits relating to the dissertation.
A masters degree will enable you to further develop the key skills employers seek such as: time management; problem solving; team work; deadline and project management; cultural awareness; working independently; using your initiative; relationship-building; critical thinking and research analysis. Above all, you will learn to communicate your ideas and enthusiasm to a wide range of audiences.
