Description: Through your coursework, you will learn about languages spoken around the world – including the 30+ languages spoken in our own province, about how the mind processes language, about the best ways to teach language, and so much more. Through preparing and presenting analyses of different kinds of linguistic data, you will also develop critical thinking skills that you can apply no matter what you end up doing later in life – e.g., as a writer, editor, lawyer, app developer, negotiator, or advertising specialist.
