Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a rigorous postgraduate programme that stands out with promising career opportunities by preparing MA TESOL graduates to make powerful difference in the teaching and research communities. With 18-credit coursework and 6-credit thesis writing, students gain in-depth knowledge of the eclectic approaches to successfully teach and do research in EFL, grasp the implications of linguistic and psychological theories for classroom language learning practice, design, develop and evaluate curricula and assessment portfolios in EAP and ESP courses and programmes. With a thorough training in the use of software to design and implement language learning activities and programmes, the programme enhances students’ knowledge and capacity in assessing, analyzing and using technology in the teaching and learning environment. The programme is thriving in integrating direct experience with Omani school students and teachers by offering opportunities of hands-on observations in schools to reflect on their learning, teaching and research. Research methodology is another strong asset of the MA TESOL programme providing well-paced and structured research methodology courses overviewing quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods that prepare students for the writing-up of their research proposal before engaging them in an independent research project for their MA thesis under expert supervision to optimize their research output and conclusions.
