ABSTRACT

 

The following report is based on searching in “google” information about postgraduate courses. We pretend to demostrate how new technologies can serve us to found information about a specific topic that we want to search or if the new technologies are not helpfull.

 

INTRODUCTION

 

As we have said, this essay is based on searching in internet, particularly in “google”, information about postgraduate courses. We have suppose that we want to do a postgraduate course and we need to find information. We have check in internet about postgraduate courses and we have select some topics, that is, we have selected a variety of courses. Some of the selected courses are: “speech and language therapy”, “teaching English as a foreign language”, “graduate program in interactive multimedia education”, “English”, “science”. What we pretend with this project is to show if new technologies are helpful for us to find what we want, some information, and so on.

Programme aims

The Diploma course offers graduates the opportunity to undertake professional training in the field of speech and language therapy. Students who obtain the Diploma are eligible for membership of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. A further aim of the MSc course is to provide students with the additional experience of designing and completing a research project.

Programme content

The subject areas studied for the Diploma include: anatomy and physiology; audiology; education; psychology; linguistics; phonetics; communication impairments and disabilities – their assessment and treatment; and medical aspects of disorders of communication.

Clinical practice for the Diploma involves attendance at health centres, schools, special educational settings and hospitals throughout the London area.

The MSc course involves a further year of work to complete the research project started in the last term of the second year.

MA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Full-Time)

 


 

 

 

Introduction
English is the world’s most economically important and widely spoken language. Graduates who specialise in teaching English to foreign students have always found a global need for their professional skills. It has been recognised for some time that a specific course is required for teachers of English to non-native speakers. It is only in the last few decades that examinations have been established to certify practitioners in this field, and that a variety of educational institutions have offered qualifications at undergraduate and postgraduate levels to those making a career in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). TEFL is now internationally recognised as an academic discipline. Several UK universities offer degrees in TEFL, and the University of Limerick was the first (and is still the only) University in the Irish State to offer a Master of Arts in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language. The course has been running for eleven years.

Objectives

· To equip graduates with a professional qualification in the area of TEFL;
· To provide a sound grounding in the theoretical presentation of the English language for teaching purposes;
· To give a practical and theoretical knowledge of the methodologies appropriate for the teaching of English as a foreign language.

Programme Content

Semester 1
Language Systems, Theory and Practice in TEFL, Teaching Practice, Introduction to Linguistics, English Phonetics and Phonology.

Semester 2
Language Systems, Theory and Practice in TEFL, Teaching Practice, Dissertation.

Summer
Dissertation.

Careers
Teachers of EFL/TEFL, EFL school inspectors, course designers, directors of studies, materials developers, technical writing/editing.

Entrance Requirements
A primary degree in any discipline, with first or second class honours or an approved equivalent qualification. Preference will be given to applicants with a primary degree in a language or cognate discipline and those with teaching experience.

Introduction

The MA English will develop your skills in reading and criticism, broaden the range of your reading - particularly in the modern period - and increase your understanding of current critical and theoretical debates. The award provides a varied experience of postgraduate literary study for those wishing to top up a first degree, and offers a foundation of knowledge and skills for those intending to pursue a research degree.

Contents

Full-time: from October to February you will take the compulsory module Foundations of Literary Scholarship, plus one special subject module. In the second teaching block (February - June), you will take two special subject modules and begin your dissertation, which is submitted at the beginning of September.

Part-time: from October to February you will take the compulsory module Foundations of Literary Scholarship followed in your second block (February - June) by a special subject module. In the third and fourth teaching blocks you will take a further special subject module. During the fourth block you begin your dissertation, which is submitted in the following January.

The current list of special subject modules is as follows:

 

  • 1895: Literature and Scandal
  • English and Englishness
  • Virginia Woolf: Gender, Writing, History
  • Narrative and Trauma


A selection of modules from this list is offered each year. Further modules may be submitted or added from year to year. The level of choice afforded to students will depend on student numbers.

In the latter part of the second teaching block (fourth for part-time students), you start work on the dissertation, and a supervisor will be allocated to you. The 15,000 word dissertation should be on a topic which incorporates attention to both literary and theoretical issues which arise in some way from work on taught modules.

Assessment

Asssessment of modules may include written assignments in the form of long and short essays, portfolios and exercises in textual analysis. An MA with distinction shall be awarded to students of exceptional merit.

Entry Requirements

Applicants normally have a first or upper second class honours degree in English/Literary Studies or in a combined or multidisciplinary course where English/Literary Studies is the major component. However, if you have a qualification other than these (eg a good lower second), you are welcome to apply, but should consult the Programme Leader before making a formal application. If you are considered for a place, you may be required to attend an interview.

CONCLUSION

 

As we can prove, new technologies are very helpful if we want to check information. “ Google” as other searchers is useful to do it, we can have information if we put the topic of what we want to check and also we have “busqueda avanzada” that gives us more quickly the information. So, if I want to check postgraduate courses, I only have to go to “google” and enter the topic that I want to check. It is very useful too, because the pages not only have the direction of the school, but also the e-mail in which you can send a message and obtain more information, but I think that the pages have the relevant information that we need. Also we are going to find the information in different universities and with many subjects but we only have to click in the one that interest us. With this, we can say that new technologies are useful to obtain information about “human language”.
