Linguistics courses offer insights into the relationship between the brain, mind and language. By studying linguistics, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to understand foreign languages and the difficulties foreign students encounter in English and French.
Linguistic courses complement programs in Education, English, Languages, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Science, and Computer Science. Linguistics is a requirement for Speech Therapy, TESL, and other programs related to language processing and language engineering.
This program provides students with a solid knowledge of basic concepts that form the foundation of linguistic theories including:
The program offers introductory and intermediary level courses in these topics. You'll gain enough theoretical and applied knowledge to be able to assess linguistics problems in day to day life.
Combining Linguistics with other disciplines at UNB opens the door to a wide variety of job opportunities.
Many of our graduates work as teachers, educators at various levels, or travel abroad as teachers of English, or deal with language-related issues in the public institutions of national defence, law, or health.
