Undergraduate Program

The Department of Linguistics offers units of study at both Pass and Honours level. Units of study can be taken as part of a major or minor in Linguistics or as stand alone units (electives).

Students who would like to deepen their knowledge and skills in this major can complete an additional year combining their Bachelor of Arts degree with the new Bachelor of Advanced Studies. In this pathway, students can undertake advanced coursework, complete a second major, combine studies from a range of disciplines and get involved in cross-disciplinary community, professional, research or entrepreneurial project work.

Structuring Your Study

Under the new degree requirements, which apply to students enrolling in 2018 (and to students who enrolled in 2017, if they wish to switch to the new curriculum) a Major in Linguistics comprises two 1000-level Linguistics units, two 2000-level Linguistics units, and four 3000-level Linguistics units. One of the 3000-level units must be an Interdisciplinary Project unit. A Minor in Linguistics comprises two 1000-level Linguistics units, two 2000-level Linguistics units, and two 3000-level Linguistics units. (An Interdisciplinary Project unit is not required for a Minor.)

Under the previous degree requirements, which apply to students enrolling in 2017 or earlier (except for students who enrolled in 2017 and who wish to switch to the new curriculum), a Major in Linguistics requires at least six senior (i.e. 2000-level or 3000-level) Linguistics units. At least one of these units must be at 3000-level.
