Master of Arts in Second Language Studies offered by the Stellenbosch University at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

The programme focuses on aspects of the phenomenon of second languages which are central to various forms of language practice. These aspects are investigated from various theoretical perspectives, including sociolinguistic and cross-cultural perspectives. You can choose between two options. Both options require independent research on a problematic aspect of second languages:

  • Option 1 - the results of the research are presented in the form of a thesis of 180 credits.
  • Option 2 - the results are presented in the form of a thesis of 90 credits.
Option 2 requires further advanced study of two themes in second-language investigation, for which you must complete a series of assignments in the first semester. You choose your study theme in consultation with the Department. Your choice is determined by the availability of supervisors and your academic background, professional needs and interests.
