Master of Arts (MA) Program

The objective of the graduate programs in English Language Education is to equip the students with advanced and specialized knowledge in the field and to help them acquire skills for research. A well-balanced emphasis on theory and application is maintained throughout the programs. It is hoped that graduates of the M.A. program will engage in teaching or research activities and develop adequate motivation for more advanced graduate work in the field, while those with a Ph.D. degree will choose to pursue academic careers at the universities. Both M.A and Ph.D. programs are carried out in accordance with the regulations of the Institute of Social Sciences.

The M.A. program in English Language Education is a two-year program consisting of 24 credits of coursework, followed by an M.A. thesis, its oral defense and a demonstration of the student’s knowledge of the field as a whole. The successful completion of the program leads to the Master of Arts Degree in English Language Education.

Individuals with a B.A. degree in English Language Education are eligible for admission to the M.A. program. Individuals who have an undergraduate degree in other fields may also apply provided that they have a valid nationally- and/or internationally-recognized teaching certificate/diploma, or at least one year of experience in English language education.
