This programme is designed to build on our many years of experience of offering the very successful face-to-face on-campus MA TESOL programme, and mirrors it closely in terms of structure, content and methods of study. The programme is entirely web based, and allows you to focus both your coursework and dissertation on issues and problems in your own educational context.
The course starts with an online orientation week in October. Modules are taken in a fixed order and assessed by a variety of assignments, essays, recorded presentations and a dissertation. Lancaster University staff provide excellent supervision and support.
You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.
Second Language Acquisition (distance)
Trends and Issues in Language Teaching Methodology (distance)
Pedagogical Grammar (distance)
Second Language Classroom Research (distance)
Curriculum Design and Teacher Development
