Carleton University uses an online registration system that lets you select and register for courses and make course changes over the internet from anywhere in the world. Of course only students who have been formally accepted into their program of study are able to register for courses.

Any conditions placed on your acceptance (for example, if any official documents are missing – check your offer of admission), must be removed by presenting the appropriate official documentation to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.  As long as you have conditions remaining on your acceptance, you will not be able to register.

For more information on how to register, visit the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs:

Course Regulations

The following are course regulations for an MA in Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies.

In your first two terms of the MA you must take the two required foundational courses, ALDS 5001 and ALDS 5002. These required courses provide an overview of the content and methodologies in Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies, and give you a thorough basis for making subsequent course and program decisions (including whether to do a research essay or thesis). You will complement these with other courses taken from the list of courses offered during the Fall and Winter terms.

Each year the graduate program offers a different courses from the overall course listings.  Click here for a list of ALDS courses in the Graduate Calendar. Courses offered in a given semester depend on faculty schedules and student demand. Rooms and times can change without notice, so check Carleton Central to see the most up-to-date offerings and schedules before registering and going to class.
