FYI Body: Middle East Technical University Northern Cyprus Campus is pleased
to announce the opening of a new two-year graduate program in
Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

The program aims to provide students with a firm foundation in the
cultural, theoretical, and applied aspects of English Language
Teaching. The program is designed around three major academic
objectives: to foster cultural and contextual knowledge of ELT and
English language learners; to instruct students in advanced ELT
pedagogies and practices; and to improve interactive English language
instruction across diverse instructional mediums. Graduates will
develop their capabilities as adaptive and creative thinkers and be
equipped with strong academic research skills and superior theoretical
and practical knowledge of English language teaching.

Applications for fall semester 2012 will be accepted through August 30,
2012. For more information, please see our website
