Major, Minor, Sub-Major
Students studying the Linguistics sub-major or minor will graduate with a broad and coherent body of knowledge in linguistics, from the structure of language and language development to communication both in monolingual and multilingual settings, and with the ability to apply new knowledge and skills in a range of professional settings. The sub-major or minor in Linguistics offers an integration of both descriptive and applied linguistics with a strong theoretical, practical, community and industry focus in fields such as education, media, health, public administration, diplomacy and trade. Students will engage with practice-based learning and the teaching-research nexus in their learning experiences, within the environment of a world-class research centre.
