Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert)
Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip)
Dissertation if doing full MA
Your dissertation is expected to be on a topic resulting from research undertaken in your field internship, supervised jointly by staff from Redcliffe’s Centre for Linguistics, Translation and Literacy, SIL International, or other appropriately-qualified field staff.
Please note: The usual entry requirements for a Redcliffe College postgraduate course apply. In addition, we require assurance that you expect to have a suitable internship assignment with SIL or equivalent in another setting.
Detailed programme specifications are available for download here.
* Please note: The two-year gap between the PGCert stage and the PGDip stage is to enable students to put into practice what they have learned in the PGCert stage modules and to gain experience and data that can be used in the PGDip stage modules. Students with previous field experience and access to relevant data can take the PGDip stage immediately after completing the PGCert stage. Non-Wycliffe students who are members of another mission agency may undertake an appropriate field assignment with their mission agency. In addition, other possible ways of completing the MA are open to negotiation – please contact the Course Leader, Phil King or the Director of CLTL.
