Abbreviation FT / PT
MA(AppliedLinguistics) FT / PT

The Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics [MA(AppliedLinguistics)] is designed for people who are currently teaching, or who want to teach, English at tertiary level. The focus of the programme is therefore on issues relating to the teaching, learning and use of English as a medium of tertiary academic and professional education. Some modules in the programme contribute to an understanding of English in all contexts, while others relate more specifically to the learning context in Hong Kong. The programme is offered on a part-time basis over two years and on a full-time basis over one year.

Students will be given ample opportunities to explore the theoretical implications and practical applications of English language studies. The strong empirical focus of our programme will be exemplified in various courses and assessments, particularly the capstone project.

We strongly encourage applicants to apply as early as possible and in the main round. Places are limited and offers are made on a rolling basis.
