Study type Taught

Summary

This MA Course offers you advanced academic study of English literature and language as well as giving you the knowledge-base necessary to become an effective manager in a variety of education settings (e.g. Higher, Further, Schools – state and private).

The course enhances your knowledge of English language and literature while at the same time giving you the opportunity to engage with education management themes with the purpose of either obtaining better employment or becoming a more effective manager in education settings.

You will practise microteaching for either language or literature and discuss innovative teaching theory and practice.

You will explore the stylistics features of the English language, discuss major English literature themes and authors in relation to sustainability and environmental issues, engage with the theory and practice of English teaching (both language and literature) and approach key issues in education management.

You will also have the opportunity to gain a recognised professional teaching qualification: the Teaching Knowledge Test accredited by Cambridge Assessment English, as part of module Professional Enhancement: Managing the Teaching and Learning Process.

The course includes the opportunity to take part in study trips. In recent years (e.g. 2018-2019) we have for example ran study trips for MA students to Stratford-upon-Avon to study the impact that Shakespeare’s language has had on modern English.

*Study trips may be subject to additional fees, application processes and/or be subject to availability.
