Name change for Master’s degrees
We are renaming our Master of Arts (180 points) programmes in Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, and TESOL. From 2022, they will be called the Master of Linguistics, the Master of Applied Linguistics, and the Master of TESOL. The Master of Arts (180 points) in Second Language Learning and Teaching will no longer be offered.
While the names of these degrees are changing, their content will stay the same.
