What is an MA in Language Teaching? A rapidly expanding field of graduate studies, language teaching is the instruction of a foreign or otherwise unknown method of communication to students. Globalization has made fluid communication vital in international business and politics. English has become the lingua franca for many industries such as airlines and education. In addition, most users of sign language are unable to communicate without it, making interpreters necessary for connection with others. Those with the ability to instruct in these fields are needed in many industries.

An MA in Language Teaching develops communication, a vital skill both in and outside of your career. You also typically learn useful teaching methods and lesson plan design in these programs.

The best way to determine the cost of an MA in Language Teaching is to decide what type of program in which you wish to study and contacting the school directly. Affordable programs may include online courses or living at home. Don’t forget considerations such as commuting costs when planning.

A Master of Arts in Language Teaching makes teaching jobs your most logical pursuit. Teachers with advanced qualifications for English teaching have become in demand in non-English-speaking countries. Even in English-speaking countries, you can generally find work teaching English to immigrants. It may also be possible for you to get a job as an interpreter or teaching method researcher.

You can find programs in language teaching at institutions around the world. Depending on the university, you may have the option of studying online or part-time. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
