This Master’s programme focuses on English language education. With the guidance of our expert faculty, you will study methods of English language teaching, the integration of technology in the classroom, educational theory, and research in second language acquisition.
The programme is largely integrated with the regular English teacher programme at Malmö University, which means that you will be part of a larger, vibrant student community.
The programme immerses you in developing practical techniques, methods, and materials for teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), such as virtual exchange, storytelling and creative writing.
You also will study English grammar in the context of TESOL, investigate adolescent language development and explore bilingual and multicultural education.
Areas of special expertise exist in the fields of second language learning, creative writing, children’s literature, sociolinguistics, educational linguistics, and psycholinguistics.
The program allows you to build on the solid foundation of your bachelor’s degree in language(s), linguistics, literature, anthropology or sociology, education, or a related area.
The two-year Masters in English and Education consists of three semesters (90 credits) that are programme-specific, and one semester (30 credits) of non-compulsory courses.
The three obligatory semesters are organized in the following way:
The optional courses could either be chosen from non-obligatory courses on offer at Malmö University or be taken at a partner university, or consist in previously taken courses which have been validated on entering the programme.
With a Master’s degree in English and Education, you are attractive for employers looking for a highly qualified individual with expert knowledge in language education.
An international MA in English and Education also provides you with the academic background you need in order to apply for doctoral studies in language education and related fields of research.
