Welcome to the School of Foreign Languages’ website. The School of Foreign Languages belongs to the Institute of Social Technology, Suranaree University. Our faculty are active teachers and researchers in different areas of language teaching, including discourse analysis, pragmatics, curriculum design, teaching materials development, etc.
At the undergraduate level, the School of Foreign Languages serves as the language center responsible for foundation English courses for non-English majors. In addition to English foundation courses, we also offer Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese language courses as electives which are taught by native speakers.
The department offers two international graduate programs: Master and Doctor of Philosophy in English Language Studies with a concentration in three areas, language analysis, language teaching, and technology enhanced language learning. The doctoral program is recognized as the first PhD program in language teaching to be offered in Thailand. Graduates of the program are well-equipped with both theoretical and research knowledge so that they are able to enter any field related to English and language learning/teaching. Since 2003, about 70 foreign students from Mainland China, Vietnam, Laos and the Philippines have enrolled on the program at both master’s and doctoral levels.
In addition to its curricular programs, the School sponsors lectures, conferences for the university community and the general public, e.g. enhancing the professional development for primary and secondary school teachers.
