Study areas

APPLIED LINGUISTICS

Applied linguistics is designed to give students a strong understanding of language structures and use across a variety of languages. Students explore the sounds and grammar of Australian English and how these differ from other English varieties and languages, as well as how we use language differently according to context and how language varies between different social groups.

ENGLISH AS AN INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE

English as an international language provides students with a new perspective on the use of English in today's globalised world by looking at the implications of intercultural communication. Students explore the use of English in a range of contexts - academic, professional, and international.
