Master of Arts (TESOL)

The Master of Arts (TESOL) provides graduates with a professional qualification for teaching English to speakers of other languages.

TESOL at UWS is offered at the new Parramatta CBD campus, situated at 100 George Street, Parramatta. UWS TESOL values bi- and multilingualism, with our staff having extensive experience and expertise in the fields of TESOL, linguistics and languages. The School of Humanities and Communication Arts works closely with UWSCollege and other language teaching providers in Sydney to organise internship placements, to access current industry trends, resources and expertise in teaching methodology, and to identify resources and trends in the field.

The new UWS internship program leads the field in connecting students with language teaching providers in Sydney. A TESOL qualification is a means of combining work and travel opportunities, with employment opportunities readily available in Australia and other countries.

The Master of Arts (TESOL) equips you with an internationally valued skill set, enabling you to communicate and exchange ideas with people of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and to learn more about other cultures and languages.

Career Opportunities

With a Master of Arts (TESOL) you can find employment in Australia in a range of private and government settings.
