Course summary

The TESOL MA programme has two routes: in-service and pre-service. The TESOL (Pre-Service) aims to enhance the employment prospects of graduates who hope to become English Language Teaching practitioners but who have no professional experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages. Students will explore the latest developments in the theory, policy and practice of TESOL, working with leading experts in the field and a large cohort of MA students. This programme will give students both a theoretical and a practical introduction to the language and discourse systems required for teaching English to speakers of other languages as well as current theories of second language acquisition. Students will also explore the methods and approaches currently used in English language teaching, the place of English and English language teaching in the wider world, as well as the concept of multilingualism and its place in education. There will also be an opportunity to carry out a small piece of guided TESOL research for the MA Report.

Careers

The programme provides graduates with a rigorous, research-based education based on the latest developments in the area of TESOL. This will give them a natural advantage when applying for teaching or other TESOL-related posts. We also help students focus on employability skills whilst they are here, for example, through departmental talks and other networking opportunities within the department and the wider UCL community.
