The Master of Education (TESOL) is designed for English language teachers who seek to develop their professional expertise and further their understanding in the areas of language education, and particularly in the area of English language teaching to children, adolescents or adults. The program explores a range of issues relating to language teaching and learning, and socio-cultural contexts of education. It also develops themes relating to practical issues in language teaching and learning in second and foreign language contexts, and investigates the theoretical basis of these issues in the light of recent research.
This program is intended to develop the teaching and professional skills of teachers of English as a second or foreign language. It is suited to both teachers who are intending to teach in local contexts and those who are intending to teach in international contexts.
