The programme is designed for both qualified and intending teachers
of English to speakers of other languages. It attracts students
from different parts of the world, who bring with them a diverse
mix of educational backgrounds and experiences. This gives us a
chance to increase our cross-cultural understanding and knowledge
of teaching and learning contexts globally. Furthermore, using
online forums, we aim to provide practical opportunities for you to
interact with language professionals around the world.
We critically reflect on theories of, and research into, the
problem of how best to learn and teach an additional language. We
aim to help you improve your own research skills and encourage you
to present and publish your findings to the English language
teaching and applied linguistics community.
You will be taught by an experienced team of staff, including the
authors of a ground-breaking new introduction to applied
linguistics aimed at advanced students of the discipline (Hall,
Smith & Wicaksono, 2011).
Our students tell us that the York St John University MA Applied
Linguistics: TESOL is a challenging and useful experience. I look
forward to welcoming you onto our programme in the near future.
The Masters Degree in Applied Linguistics: TESOL qualifies you to
teach English as a foreign or second language anywhere in the world
(specific requirements will vary between schools and countries).
So, if you want a career that is varied and exciting, or if you are
already teaching English and want to prepare yourself for more
responsibility, this programme could be for you.
Experienced teachers of English may be awarded credits on the basis
of their qualifications and experience. Whatever experience you
bring to the programme, our aim is to assist you in the development
of your professional practice and further your career in English
language teaching at home or overseas. We aim to give you the
opportunity to develop your individual interests within the context
of your current and future classroom practice.
