The graduate diploma (GDip) in Linguistics is unique and will appeal to current Carleton graduate students interested in interface linguistics. It is open to both PhD and Master’s students from disciplines other than linguistics and will allow them to incorporate the study of linguistics into their primary program. At this time, it is designed primarily for students pursuing Carleton degrees in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies, Cognitive Science, Anthropology, French and English. The program culminates with a Capstone Examination which ensures students have acquired the same level of linguistics knowledge as graduates from the MA.

Admission Requirements

Undergraduate or graduate coursework in linguistics or related fields, and concurrent enrolment in a graduate program such as Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies, Anthropology, Cognitive Science, English or French.  For more information Lev Blumenfeld or Beth MacLeod.
