SLaLS offers degrees in two areas of concentration at the undergraduate level:
- Linguistics – concerned with the formal description and analysis of language
- Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies * – focused on language use in social and educational settings
We also offer minors in the following:
The Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CTESL) can be done either concurrently with a BA in Linguistics or in ALDS, or as a postgraduate certificate.
Students of American Sign Language can choose to pursue a Certificate in American Sign Language.
* In 2010 the decision was made to change the name of this program to Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies from Applied Language Studies. Click here to read more about this decision.
