Program description

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages MA

This course has been designed specifically with the aim of providing initial teacher education for those wishing to become teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL) or English as a 2nd language (ESL); the program allows teachers to develop and reflect upon their understanding of the various theoretical and practical issues that impact upon the field of language teaching; it places particular emphasis on the notion of informed and critical teaching and the need for teachers to mediate between theory and practice in constructing pedagogies according to specific teaching-learning contexts; a balance is maintained throughout the course between linguistic content, pedagogic content, and teaching-related research.

Admission requirements

A second or first class honours level primary degree or equivalent professional qualification (Primary degree: Level 8 - National Qualifications Authority of Ireland).

All candidates will also be required to attend an interview. Where candidates are overseas these may be conducted via telephone or Skype.  Candidates who do not meet the above degree/qualification requirements may apply for admission to the degree course.  The admission of such applicants would be exceptional and would be subject to the applicant's interview and the approval of the Course Director and course team.  In such cases, equivalent prior professional experience will be considered.

Applicants' qualification for entry to some of the modules, e.g. TP and Materials Development modules, will be ascertained on the basis of demonstrated language proficiency, prior teaching qualification/s and teaching experience. This will initially be done at interview stage, and electives for Semester 2 will be decided in consultation with course team by the end of Semester 1.
