In today's globalised world, the cultural and linguistic composition of communities is more diverse than ever before.
The ability to express ourselves, to communicate with others and to decipher the multitude of messages we receive every day from both within our own culture and across others is fundamental to our existence in today's modern society.
In our ever-shrinking and interconnected world, the ability to teach English to speakers of other languages is a highly desirable skill. And, the ability to teach with both cultural and linguistic sensitivity is even more valuable.
With its dual focus, this course will provide you with an understanding of the complex relationship between language use and context, as well as a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the field of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL).
Key features of the Master of Applied Linguistics and TESOL at Macquarie University:
- You'll have the opportunity to study with one of the largest and most diverse linguistics departments in Australia, which is home to four research centres.
- You'll study a broad range of topics within the area of applied linguistics.
- This course is available on campus, online, or through a combination of both, which means you can continue to work full-time while studying.
- You can combine this course with the Master of Translation and Interpreting Studies to expand your knowledge.
- Much of this course's content is also relevant to teachers of other languages.
The TESOL element enables graduates with prior experience as language teachers to enhance their career prospects in this important field.
Graduates from the Master of Applied Linguistics and TESOL degree are also employed in a wide range of positions that require effective communication with colleagues, as well as with clients, patients or students.
Many work in professions that help others to communicate more effectively in written or spoken form.
