What you'll study
Your first two core modules, Approaches & Methods in English Language Teaching and Second Language Acquisition, will give you an excellent grounding in the basic methods and theories of language teaching and language learning.
From these solid foundations, you can then specialise in your chosen area. Elective modules cover subjects such as curriculum design and materials evaluation, educational technologies and software, the teaching of English in professional and academic contexts, research methods in applied linguistics, discourse analysis, or, if you're a native English speaker in particular, the fundamentals of English language, grammar and vocabulary.
You’ll become an accomplished language teacher. You'll gain valuable insights into the process of language teaching and learning by becoming a language learner: as part of the programme, you’ll study a foreign language for two semesters.
We will give you ample opportunities to observe English language teaching in classroom situations and reflect on good practice. You’ll also have opportunities to apply your theories.
All your lecturers in this programme are also practitioner teachers so you'll benefit from the most up-to-date expertise in English language teaching.
Our London location is also a significant advantage: you’ll be able to perfect your own language skills in an exciting multicultural environment.
We want your MA English Language Teaching programme at Queen Mary University of London to be a career investment: not only does this programme enable you to become a specialised language teacher, it also opens the door to further study in academia and to careers in language-related fields such as quality control, assessment, syllabus development and planning or educational technology.
