    Applied Linguistics

    About

    English is one of the most spoken languages in the world, making it key to effective communication between people in a myriad of social, cultural and economic contexts.

    The Master of Applied linguistics course prepares you for these contexts by combining practical and theoretical units in the field. It is designed for language education professionals who intend to teach English as a second or additional language in Australia or overseas.

    The combination of practical and theoretical units provides a rich learning experience. Your skills in TESOL will be enhanced as you connect global issues with TESOL teaching and evaluate language teaching course design and assessment practices.

    Investigating second or additional language acquisition will provide you with a backdrop to language teaching methodologies as will learning about Englishes spoken around the world.

    You will also become aware of the role of language in society and acquire the skills you need to conduct your own research project in applied linguistics.

    Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.
