Curriculum

The course consists of four modules and a dissertation, which includes research methods training.

You will look at the theoretical, conceptual side of language systems within the field of applied linguistics. You will explore how we can draw on these theories to devise a curriculum and learning materials.

Because English is a world language, both power and ideology are intertwined with its teaching. The course offers a chance to examine the politics or the social dimensions of teaching English as a foreign and as a second language.

For instance, English is associated with modernisation in some parts of the world. In developing countries it can be seen as key to social mobility, even if that is more discourse than reality.

Subjects such as these will form the basis of discussion seminars as you explore how theory works in practice.

You will also be exposed to research methodologies in the Second Language Acquisition module and have the opportunity to work on a dissertation that involves language data collection, perhaps from your own students.
