Overview

Doing a Master's Dissertation in TESOL and Applied Linguistics is a practical guide for master's students tackling research and research writing for the first time. Structured for use in class or as part of an independent study, and divided into the four stages of designing, researching, writing up and submitting a dissertation, this book: carefully guides readers from the very beginning of producing a research proposal, all the way through to assessment procedures and the provisions for resubmission; covers publishing your dissertation and applying for higher research degrees, including funding; addresses all the most fundamental concerns students have about master's dissertations, including how to choose a topic and conducting a literature review; draws upon examples from master's dissertations from the UK, US and Australia and provides numerous 'how-to' tables and checklists; and includes activities and resources to facilitate master's research and dissertation writing, as well as FAQs and solutions at the end of each chapter. Tailormade for MA students in TESOL or Applied Linguistics, this book is essential reading for students on these degrees around the world as well as for their supervisors and programme directors.
