Course summary

Our MA Applied Linguistics and TESOL will improve your theoretical understanding of language learning and help you to develop your teaching skills. You will explore the latest theories in topics such as second language acquisition and social discourse, as well as learning different methods of analysis with which to assess to their value to your own language teaching. You will also learn to conduct your own research, compiling and analysing qualitative and quantitative data and developing your critical-evaluative skills. These skills will be put to use on your own research project at the end of the course, as well as in your future career. Our optional modules will also allow you to explore your own interests, with topics including course design and classroom practice, as well as 'Impacts of Migration' and 'Language, Identity and Policy', which will help prepare you for a teaching career across the world. Outside of the course, you can take part in our research seminars and conferences. Our past events have included the Identities in Language conference, the British Association for Applied Linguistics conference 2016, and the SymPol Conference on Linguistic (Im)Politeness.
