M.A.- Applied Linguistics, Pg. Dip. of Arts - Applied Linguistics
The Master of Arts in applied linguistics deals with applications of linguistics to professional and social contexts in which language plays a crucial role. Present offerings are particularly suited to teachers of English as a mother tongue, as a second or foreign language, to teachers of languages other than English, to generalist primary school teachers, to language advisers, language consultants, and those concerned with multicultural and language policies. People working in the media (advertising/journalism), in business/industry as well as in the service professions (health, law, social work) would also find this course useful as some units deal with applications of linguistics relevant to the media, the workplace and the professions.
