This English Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics course at Coventry University draws on innovative research carried out on the English language by members of the School of Humanities (English language specialists) and focuses on the theory and practice of teaching English in a variety of contexts.
The course offers two pathways: one focusing on TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and one focusing on Linguistics and English for Academic Purposes (EAP). The course includes a wide variety of assessment tasks and the opportunity for students to select their own dissertation topic on a subject that is relevant to their teaching context.
The course includes the opportunity to take part in study trips.. * In recent years (e.g. 2018 and 2019) we have ran free trips to the London Museums to design language learning tasks based on the artefacts viewed, and to Stratford-upon-Avon to study the impact that Shakespeare’s language has had on modern English. During the optional study trip to Valencia, Spain, we observe English classes taught in three different universities and discuss intercultural and context-specific issues relating to English Language Teaching with our international partners.
In addition to enabling you to learn more about classroom, blended and online teaching and learning, this course will provide you with the chance to develop skills to perform roles such as materials developer, resource manager and examiner. It can also lead to a variety of careers associated with teaching English or the use of English Language, including education management, academic consultancy, journalism, information management and human resources, among others.
Recognised the world over as evidence of advanced skills and knowledge, a Master's degree can assist you to secure professional advancement. It can provide access to senior management posts in both private and state educational institutions around the world.
