Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)

The M.A. TEFL Program is designed to help experienced teachers of English as a foreign language develop professionally by increasing their knowledge of foreign language instruction theory and practice. Students in the program examine the following:

  • Linguistics, sociolinguistics, and analysis of the English language;
  • Second language acquisition and TEFL research;
  • Language teaching methodology, curriculum and materials development, and testing.

M.A. TEFL students discuss and apply instructional models and linguistic theories which relate classroom experiences of EFL students to real-life communicative needs. They also improve their skills in understanding and conducting research in foreign language education.
