Course content

In the MA in Second Language Education, you’ll study with students from around the world, bringing a wide range of perspectives to enrich learning. You'll spend time investigating second language education case studies from a range of countries and exploring research related to second language provision, pedagogy, curriculum development and policy making.

Through reading and analysing existing research, you'll develop skills to critically appraise current issues in second language education. This will inform the development of practice within your own national context and enable comparisons across countries. Understanding related international research will support the development of skills relevant to becoming a policy maker, curriculum planner or second language teacher.
