Abstract


This current study aimed to investigate MA students’ perspectives about the English as a foreign language (EFL) curriculum and methods of teaching program employed in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the Hashemite University. More specifically, the study attempted to explore the students’ perspectives of the program in terms of strengths and weaknesses. Data was collected through a questionnaire interview from 9 students who were about to finish their study. Findings showed that students highlighted the instructional and research-skill benefits for the program. They also revealed that the main weak points of the program were related to theory or theoretical orientation, statistics, the professor’s behavior, and research project. The findings can be valuable for teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) syllabus designers, TEFL instructors, instructors of other subject areas, and researchers in higher education.
