Degree: Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study: Linguistics
Description: Linguistics is the scientific study of language as a universal human phenomenon. Linguists investigate the structure of language, its relationship to other systems of communication, how children and adults acquire language, language in its social context, the causes and effects of language change, and universal properties of language. The Department of Linguistics emphasizes theoretical linguistics; we explore what it means to know, learn and use a language in order to better understand the structure of human language and the properties that define human language ability. Co-operative Education students complete a minimum of twelve months and a maximum of twenty months work experience (depending on Faculty/Department requirements), normally alternating periods of work and study starting and ending on an academic session.
