School: University of Calgary
Faculty: Arts
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Linguistics
Description: In the Linguistics and Language program, you will acquire explicit knowledge of structural properties of language and gain proficiency in a new language. This program balances two broad approaches. One emphasizes the psychological reality of language as one cognitive system; students learn the structural properties of language in general and of one language (Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, etc.) in particular. The other approach emphasizes the humanistic reality of language as a social and historical phenomenon; students learn the socio-cultural context and the historical heritage that are essential parts of what people are saying when they use a particular language. The Co-op program allows you to alternate in-school learning with 12 to 16 months of full-time paid work experience.
