University of Notre Dame
What sets the human species apart is our capacity to communicate with one another through language. Have you ever wondered what languages have in common and how they differ? How we learn a language as children and as adults? How we use languages in different societies and how they relate to our different cultures? How they are represented in the mind and brain, and expressed using the body? If so, you are in good company – these are some of the questions linguists ask. This major aims to give you the broadest possible grounding in contemporary Linguistics and enables you to specialise in your areas of interest.
About The Course
This major includes both fascinating theoretical research and practical field-orientated projects. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a variety of linguistic topics including grammatical descriptions and dictionaries of Australian Aboriginal languages, analysis of Australian English and Romance languages, the study of meaning in language and the relation between language and society.
