    Programme Description

    Applied Linguistics is an interdisciplinary field which mediates between the theory of language and the practice of language learning. It is also an overarching field that includes Second Language Acquisition (SLA), and as such, can shed light on the teaching and learning of a second or foreign language.

    The course is designed to provide students with an opportunity to reflect and further develop their understanding of both theoretical and practical considerations in the field of language learning and teaching. It encourages students to develop a broad theoretical base reflecting current cutting edge research within Applied Linguistics and related disciplines. Additionally, this course makes links between the different disciplines which contribute to our knowledge of language learning and issues related to language pedagogy.

    Students who would be ideally suited to take this course would be those who are:

    * graduates in a discipline related to Applied Linguistics and who wish to further their academic study with a focus on language learning and SLA,
    * graduates of related disciplines who have an interest in the learning and teaching of English and foreign languages,
    * teachers of English as a Second Language and/or Foreign Languages in all phases of education
    * educationalists interested in the study of a second language.
