Course summary

This programme is aimed at teachers who want to gain a deeper understanding of the theories behind English language teaching. If you want to teach in higher education or private schools we can also help you to gain a professional qualification (for an extra cost), such as a Certificate in English Language to Adults (CELTA) in addition to your MA.

  • Gain practical teaching experience
  • Study in the UK’s top-ranked linguistics department (RAE 2008, RAE 2014)
  • Flexible course structure: you can opt for a research or CELTA pathway
  • Develop your expertise in specialist areas and enhance your career options
  • Perfect for recent graduates and ELT teachers who don't have a linguistics background

Facilities

  • Our new Graduate Centre: purpose-built study spaces and a roof-top common room with a terrace
  • Access to Queen Mary’s comprehensive libraries, including the Postgraduate Reading Room
  • Access to the superb collections at Senate House Library, University of London

Career paths

We want your MA programme to be a career investment: not only does this programme enable you to become a specialised language teacher, it also opens the door to further study in academia and to careers in language-related fields such as quality control, assessment, syllabus development and planning or educational technology.
