Master of Applied Linguistics
This program focuses on research across the concerns related to language
in applied contexts. It is available by coursework, a combination of coursework and a minor thesis, or by research. Majors include Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Languages Other than English (LOTE) teaching, and intercultural communication.
This is a teacher development course and is appropriate if you’re teaching at any level. It will add a specialist qualification or lead to further study opportunities in the broad field of education or applied linguistics.
Applicants with a three-year Bachelor's degree or equivalent qualification are eligible for entry to the full two-year program. Applicants with a four-year teaching qualification, Honours degree or a relevant Graduate Diploma from a recognised university or institution are eligible for Advanced Standing entry to the one-year program.
NB: Meeting minimum prerequisites does not guarantee an offer of a place. Entry into all La Trobe courses is based on competitive selection and there may be limited places available.
Graduates can find roles in the planning, administration and delivery of language and literacy programs, and will be qualified to undertake applied research relevant to their professional responsibilities and interests. Typical graduate roles include tutor, lecturer, ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher and applied linguistics curriculum coordinator.
