    The programme is primarily designed for those interested in TEFL as an academic field and has the following main objectives:

    to offer students a solid background and deepen their knowledge in the main areas of TEFL both from a theoretical and a practical point of view;
    to enable students to become acquainted with new areas of the field (such as Computer Assisted Language Learning, alternative assessment, English as a Lingua Franca, etc.);
    to engage students in research in the field, and consequently get students interested in furthering their studies.

    The duration of the programme is four semesters and the requirement for the MA degree is 120 ECTS points. The programme is divided into two components: three semesters of taught courses (three courses per semester, 10 ECTS units per course) and a fourth semester of research leading to an MA thesis (30 ECTS). The taught component covers the main areas of TEFL and familiarizes the student with research methodology. The thesis component provides the opportunity for the student to undertake research in a specialized area of his or her interest.
