Online Master's Degree

Teaching Modern Languages to Adults


Welcome to the TMLA website - and to a whole new approach to Master's degrees for practitioners of MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) and teachers of EFL/ESL (English as a Foreign/Second Language). In May 2004, in recognition of its ground-breaking nature, it was one of two courses distinguished with the Honorary Graduates' Award for Innovative Teaching, a distinction awarded annually by the University of Dundee for the most innovative teaching programme(s) across all of its faculties and departments.

Building on the success of past years, our part-time distance learning degree is now delivered in an online Virtual Learning Environment. Students may exit with a Certificate, Diploma or full Master’s degree. During the course, varied modules allow you to explore a range of cutting-edge issues such as:

CMC & linguistic change
intercultural awareness
linguistic colonialism
language ecology
cultural clashes
discourse and power
discourse and gender
post-method teaching
learner empowerment
peer response

You'll find lots of information about the TMLA here on our webpages, including comments from past students who've taken the online version of the course - these have been recently added on the Overview of Modules page. Feel free to browse through the whole site, using the index bar at the top of this page. Of course, if you don't find the details you're looking for, or if you should require any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch through the Contact Us page. We look forward to hearing from you - and to welcoming you on our course!
