Program Information

School: Glendon College
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Linguistics
Description: Linguistics and Language Studies Program examines the building blocks of languages, how they develop and change over time, how people learn languages, how regional accents differ, and other fascinating language-based questions. Linguistics principles can be applied to all languages; at Glendon we focus on English, French, and Spanish.

Linguistics and Language Studies can lead you to a career in speech language pathology, editing, publishing, language teaching, advertising, and more. Some students pursue a Master’s degree in speech pathology, while others go on to graduate studies in other specializations in linguistics. Professor Ian Martin has helped the government of the newly created territory of Nunavut to develop its language policies in the area of education.
