Course content

The MSc TESOL and Intercultural Communication degree is designed for students intending to pursue a career in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). It is also applicable to those who currently work in this field but wish to enhance professional knowledge and skills, and improve career prospects.

This masters degree course addresses questions about the learning, teaching and use of English by speakers of other languages from an intercultural communication perspective. It draws on the expertise of educationalists, linguists, and literature/culture scholars.

Course options allow students to explore issues across these disciplines or to specialise in one area. Recognising that the place of English is evolving rapidly in an increasingly complex multilingual and multicultural world, we equip course graduates with the theoretical and practical skills to teach English to learners with a wide range of social, cultural and communicative goals.

You'll gain a better understanding of language learning and language use in intercultural contexts. You will engage with key issues relating to language teaching and intercultural communication. You will have opportunities to develop theoretical knowledge and practical skills for language-related careers in a linguistically diverse world. This is an interdisciplinary course combining insights from education, linguistics, and literature. You can take a mix of classes or focus more closely on one of these areas.
