The human capacity for language is at the heart of the study of linguistics. The field encompasses the nature of different languages and the nature of language as a cognitive and social phenomenon. It asks questions such as: How do we communicate? In what ways are languages different and similar? How do we learn language? Why does language change over time? What is the relationship between mind and language?

The Graduate Certificate of General and Applied Linguistics will introduce you to linguistic theory, analysis, and associated methodologies, and offer the opportunity to study language as a cognitive, social, and historical process. Applications for the Semester 1, 2024 are now open.
