The Master of Arts (TESOL) is a one-year full-time or part-time equivalent course designed for professionals in the field of language education.
The course, which concentrates on Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), considers issues connected with TESOL teaching in Australia and the Asia–Pacific region. The course is designed for teachers intending to work in Australia and overseas and is available to international students.
You will evaluate current second language acquisition theory and consider the roles and status of languages in multicultural societies, particularly in Asia. You will consider contrastive learning and teaching styles with special reference to teacher-student roles in Asian and Australian societies. You will also learn to effectively plan and evaluate language teaching, schemes of work/syllabuses, and language assessment procedures.
You will be able to take alternative pathways - coursework or research. If you aim to undertake doctoral level studies in the future you are advised to complete the research dissertation pathway. Graduates of the research pathway are expected to be able to plan and conduct research, and to develop and evaluate projects with a high degree of initiative, independence and resourcefulness.
