Is there a difference between how potential employers will view an MA in Applied Linguistics and an MA in AppLing TESOL?

Zed,

At USQ the courses you take for them are the same.

I'm guessing the "Applied Linguistics" will be more marketable for teaching in a university.

Your diploma can read either:

1. M.A. Education in Teaching a Second Language

2. M.A. Applied Linguistics

Both are done through the faculty of education.

I just read through this whole sticky, but couldn't find one mention of a MA in TEFL.

I'm looking at a MATEFL program offered by Simmons College. Would it be that different from a MA TESOL?

I've also heard that there may be some negative response towards the fact that the degree is from a "college" and not a "university."

Any ideas?

Ok. I'm a bit confused here. Is the general consensus that an M.Ed. is better than an MA in TESOL/Applied Ling.? I am very interested in both these programs and can't decide which to do.
