Course summary

Overview

English is a global language used daily in business, education and the media by many people for whom it is a second rather than a ‘native’ language. This course, based in the Faculty of Education and Humanities, has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to be an effective teacher of the language. Applying the insights of linguistic research into how English is learned and used in a wide variety of situations, the programme with its practical focus will help you become a resourceful, reflective and confident professional in the field of English language teaching.

Course Details

This course forms a pathway within the MA Education. To be awarded the qualification MA Education (English Language Teaching) you will need to successfully complete four 30 credit modules plus a 60 credit dissertation. You should take at least three of the modules described below, namely EDUM133, EDUM134, EDUM135 and EDUM136. Each of these modules is also open to you if you have a particular interest in the subject but do not want to follow the complete pathway.
