Linguistics and Applied Linguistics

The Linguistics and Applied Linguistics major is all about languages, grammar, sounds, and meaning. It also encompasses the social and cultural side including how language affects how we think. You have to do 3 compulsory subjects: Phonetics, Syntax and a capstone- Exploring Linguistic Diversity. And then there is also recommended subjects for honours too. The first year subject, The Secret Life of Language is reviewed as a good overview of the major at length, worth trying out if you’re interested. The lecturer has received high praise from students, being described as having a sense of humour and not terrible lecture slides
