The Master of Applied Linguistics is a professional development program designed for teachers of English and other second languages, as well as language professionals in translation, interpretation and other second language areas. You can choose to specialise in Applied Linguistics or Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Studies.
For your one year of full-time (or part-time equivalent) study, you'll select from nearly 20 courses in the linguistic, psychological, educational and socio-cultural aspects of language learning and use, and in language teaching methodology.
The program has a strong national and international reputation. Graduates take up, and in many cases return to, teaching and administrative positions in high schools, universities and language schools in Australia and abroad. They also find employment in business and government positions that draw on the understanding of how languages are used in different settings and cultures.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Depending on which field you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
