This MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) offered at The University of Hull is ideal if you want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of English and how to teach it, and to explore new developments in language teaching such as the use of technology in the classroom.
The MA in TESOL at Hull is unusual in that we include a practical teaching component, with observed classroom practice an integral part of the course. As such, newcomers to teaching and experienced classroom practitioners alike can explore the role of a language teacher in the modern world.
What you'll study
The central themes of the programme engage with theoretical and practical teaching issues. You follow introductory modules in Semester 1. In Semester 2, you have the opportunity to enhance your practical teaching skills and look at innovative approaches to teaching, building on theoretical expertise developed in the first semester. In Semester 3, you undertake a 15,000-word dissertation.
The MA in TESOL enables you to become an independent, advanced professional leader, equipped with the theoretical knowledge and practical classroom experience needed to excel in research, programme leadership and teaching.
The MA graduates leave Hull with the skills and knowledge employers are looking for. The experience you gain in a real teaching environment is unique to Hull, so you’ll stand out against the competition in the job market.
The School engages in interdisciplinary research activities that often cut across traditional language-centred boundaries. Many of our students choose to progress on to PhD-level study and the TESOL specialists offer supervision in many areas, including the methodology of language teaching, online language learning and second language acquisition.
