Overview

Linguistics is the study of language in all its aspects including its structure, its diversity, how it changes and evolves, how people learn and make use of it to communicate, and how we can preserve and revive endangered languages. Applied Linguistics focuses on areas such as second or foreign language learning and use, language policy, multilingualism, language education, and the assessment of language. The Graduate Certificate in Arts - specialisation in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics provides students with an insight into Linguistics and Applied Linguistics, while developing strong critical and analytical skills.
