Our applied linguistics focus aims to equip people to be involved in language planning and development project teams working with the lesser-known languages of the world, many of which are unwritten. Because language planning and development work is complex and requires good understanding, skills and abilities across multiple disciplines the course includes units in phonetics and language learning, phonological and grammatical analysis, sociolinguistics, translation, semantics literacy and training.
After completing the introductory subjects in a summer semester and Semester 1 students typically choose to specialise in translation and linguistics or literacy education in Semester 2. Because graduates are expected to be involved in training others as a member of a team, training in language development contexts is an emphasis of the course.
The course comprises a minimum of eight units.
