MA Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP) is a one year full-time, or two years part-time, programme for experienced language professionals that wish to develop an understanding of the teaching and learning of English for specific academic contexts.
This programme is particularly suitable for teachers, teacher trainers, language school directors, curriculum developers, inspectors, lecturers, materials writers, and people that have already had some involvement with specialist English teaching and learning.
MA Teaching English for Academic Purposes will give you a deeper understanding of the background, theories, practices and research in academic and professional English.
You will be ready to apply this knowledge to specific academic and professional situations, whether they are in the classroom, in course design, in evaluation, or in other academic and professional situations.
The programme will help you analyse the learning requirements of a group of language learners, and design, teach and evaluate a programme of study.
Year 1Compulsory modules
Critical Study allows you to design and undertake a small-scale research project related to your own interests in the field of education.
Learning and Teaching in TESOL examines the approaches and principles that TESOL teachers can use to teach the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Investigating Language for TESOL provides you with the skills to describe language in terms of sounds, words, grammar and discourse, and considers how you can analyse learners' language to understand their language development.
Teaching Academic English will help you understand what distinguishes academic discourse from other kinds and so understand the kinds of 'literacies' - skills, knowledge and technical abilities - that tertiary level students need to have, and understand how English for Academic Purposes teaching can help learners acquire those skills.
Corpus Linguistics in the Classroom explores the use of corpora in the teaching of English for Academic Purposes. It will show you what kinds of corpora are available and how to use them to identify what language specific groups of learners need to learn.
You then choose one or two of the following modules.
* Directed Study in Education
* The Practice of Supporting Language Teacher Learning
* Learning and Teaching Vocabulary
* Grammar, Learning and Teaching
* Teacher Education for TESOL
* Materials Development for TESOL
All of our MA courses require a good first degree in a relevant discipline.
* Two years relevant experience. We consider applicants with alternative experience on an individual basis.
