MA Programs in ELT / Applied Linguistics

In 2005-06, I was appointed the Director of the MA Program in Applied English Linguistics offered by the English Department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.  Over the next five years, I enriched the program by offering elective courses taught by eminent visiting professors and promoted the program by generating wide publicity in Hong Kong and China. As a result, the number of applicants to the program grew steadily making it the most competitive MA program in applied linguistics/ELT in Hong Kong. This growth was achieved despite a doubling of tuition during the same period.

If you wish to launch a new MA program in applied linguistics or ELT, I can 
conduct a needs
 analysis (in order to formulate admission criteria and the curriculum of the program)
formulate admission criteria
design a curriculum
prepare course descriptions, and
design a marketing plan. 

Fees: Negotiable depending on the services required.

All existing programs need periodic reviews. I can conduct a review of your program by 
examining the course offerings
examining the course contents, and by
surveying teachers and students. 

Following the review, I will make recommendations to strengthen your program academically and enhance its competitiveness. This will also help you to promote and expand your MA program.
