大学院 英語教授法(TESOL)コース



Nagoya University of Foreign Studies (NUFS) New!
Master of Arts in TESOL
(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
Program for Native and Non-Native Speaking Teachers of English

1. Goals

This MA program focuses on site-based application of learning toward the methods. Much research has shown that traditional professional development programs have little impact on teachers’practices because teachers do not have opportunities to apply what they have learned to their own classes. This program features a component of action research so that participants can integrate theory and practice. For this purpose, university teachers will be fully involved in this program, including site-based visits and consultations concerning curriculum development and teaching methods.

2. Characteristics of the program

(1) All classes are taught in English.
(2) The program is open to in-service teachers of English, both native and non-native English speakers.
(3) It includes action research and curriculum development in the workplace.
(4) Classes are practical, including many hands-on activities.
(5) Intensive classes are held on Saturdays every month (four times a semester) in addition to summer courses.

3. Non-degree students course

If you are a non-degree student before entering the program, the amount of money you paid in that period is deducted from the tuition of the second year. Credits you earned as a non-degree student will be transferred to this program. It means you can take this course for three years with the tuition of two years.
