About this course

The human capacity for language is at the heart of the study of linguistics. The field encompasses the nature of different languages and the nature of language as a cognitive and social phenomenon. It asks questions such as: How do we communicate? In what ways are languages different and similar? How do we learn language? Why does language change over time? What is the relationship between mind and language? The Master of General and Applied Linguistics (Advanced) offers the opportunity to explore these and many other questions through an especially broad selection of topics. The program will provide you with a solid grounding in linguistic theory, analysis and associated methodologies, and offers the opportunity to study language as a cognitive, social and historical process. Students can also study a broad range of languages as part of the degree.
