The Bachelor of Arts enables students to pursue two areas of academic interest at the same time and graduate with increased employment opportunities. The Applied Linguistics major teaches how language shapes human experience, how it works and how to use it effectively in a world of linguistic and cultural diversity. Students develop an in-depth understanding of human language, and how languages and cultures shape communication, identities and learning in the contemporary world and explore the ways in which language is fundamental to human understanding, communication and culture.
