Applied linguistics addresses real-life language problems through insights gained from current linguistic theory, psychology and education. Our MA is designed for people who want to know more about how foreign or second languages (particularly English) are learned, and how different kinds of classroom practice might affect proficiency. You explore different approaches to understanding language and language acquisition, and the methods that can be used to investigate language learning and teaching. You select a mixture of modules on language learning and its application to classroom practices.
You can tailor your learning experience with a choice of optional modules. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website
