General Description of the Department:

     The Department of Foreign Language Education offers a B.A. program in English Language Education and

    graduate programs leading to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in English Language Education. The undergraduate program

    consists of professional courses including methodological and pedagogical approaches to foreign language teaching.

    The Department of Foreign Language Education provides courses related to second language acquisition and second

    language teaching methodology and organizes practice teaching in selected schools. Other courses of the program are

    offered by various departments of the Faculty of Education. Through elective courses, students are provided with

    opportunities to pursue individual interests in various cultural and professional subjects. Taking into consideration

    the latest developments in the field, students are provided with a solid foundation in the English language, English

    literature, methodology, educational sciences and linguistics in order to make them fully qualified teachers of English.

     The M.A. and Ph.D. programs in ELT introduce major theoretical and methodological issues in English

    Language Teaching and provide students with a firm foundation in the theoretical and applied aspects of the field.

    Both programs focus on current issues in teaching and learning languages and professional development of language

    teachers.

     The ELT Department concentrates on teaching English as a second / foreign language, which involves

    teaching the four main skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), teaching young children, teacher education,

    materials development, syllabus design, language acquisition, language testing and so forth. In the first and second

    years, students are given substantial education as to how English language works from different perspectives. Later in

    the third and fourth years, they are equipped with more professional expertise such as teaching methodology,

    curriculum design, testing and so forth. Students are assigned to primary and secondary schools for both classroom

    observation and practice teaching in the second and fourth years.

     Upon completing the undergraduate studies, students acquire a Bachelor’s Degree (B.A) in English language teaching as a second / foreign language, which entitles the degree holder to apply for an M.A. in this Division or

    elsewhere. M.A is completed in 2 years minimum, 3 years maximum. An M.A degree holder may pursue a doctoral

    degree in this department or elsewhere. PhD usually takes 3 to 5 years to complete. Undergraduate and graduate

    studies (M.A and PhD) are offered only full-time.
