About this course

The Master of Education programme is primarily designed for educators working in Singapore schools and the Ministry of Education (see additional notes below). University graduates with a background in education and wishing to advance your knowledge and skills in education are also welcome to apply.

The Master of Education (English) programme aims to equip teachers with a repertoire of critical, aesthetic, cultural, and multimodal literacies in relation to English Education. Teachers complete two required specialisation courses that examine the interdisciplinary connections between English Language and English Literature education and apply sociocultural, linguistic, and literary theories to the critical reading of texts. Additionally, the programme offers teachers the flexibility of selecting from a range of specialisation elective courses in the teaching of English Language or the teaching of English Literature or both. Teachers can pursue and build upon their interests in topics related to teaching grammar and writing, multimodality, world literatures, and creative writing among others. Teachers will also acquire critical inquiry and action-research skills and apply them to the investigation of a specific issue related to the teaching of English.
