M.A. in language Studies
UNE's Master of Applied Linguistics (MAAL) degree provides a professional qualification for those working in language teaching, language program management, TESOL, social services, health, education and the law, as well as those who work with linguistic and cultural minorities.
No previous linguistics study is required, and the degree can be completed in as little as one year.
UNE's MAAL degree was Australia's first fully online Masters degree in Applied Linguistics, and our staff have over 15 years of experience in offering this high-quality interactive postgraduate course using the latest multimedia technology. You will be part of a global classroom, interacting with your lecturers and with students from more than 30 countries via online discussion forums. You'll explore languages of the world, language acquisition, language in education, language in legal and other professional contexts, and intercultural communication - all at a time and place that suit your work or family commitments.
Choose from the General Program leading to the Master of Applied Linguistics, or the TESOL Major, leading to the Master of Applied Linguistics (TESOL).
The TESOL Major incorporates specialist TESOL units including a professional practicum which can be completed in a wide range of contexts.
Students who wish to pursue further research can take a 24 credit point independent research project, LING599, which meets the requirements for entry to a Ph.D. (entry to LING599 is selective).
