Teaching English as an Additional Language MA, MEd


This program is designed for educators working with English as Additional Language learners in a variety of local and international educational settings. The program will provide students with advanced knowledge of theoretical, research and practical issues in teaching English language learners.

Normally, two years of full-time classroom teaching experience is required for admission to the program.

Most students in the program are full-time teachers in the Vancouver area. All courses are scheduled in the late afternoon/evenings. Since all students are experienced teachers, the program does not make provisions for Fieldwork courses. As most students also work full-time, most take one course per term and this affects core course scheduling. Course contents address globalized contexts of English as an International Language (EIL) education and attend more fully to ESL situations. Most students complete the program in six terms.
