Applied Linguistics

Systemic functional linguistics and the groundbreaking literacy initiatives of the 'Sydney School' in primary, secondary, tertiary and adult education are internationally recognised. Applied linguistics includes a focus on the process of teaching and learning a second language and is suitable for those involved in teaching English to speakers of others languages (TESOL), second language teaching (SLT) and teaching of modern languages. The program is also designed for those interested in applying linguistics in other professional areas, including translation, journalism & media, language policy and planning, website design, and socio-educational development work.
