¿Qué aprenderé?

Linguistics is the scientific study of one of the most fundamental aspects of being human: using language to communicate. Linguists explore a range of fascinating areas, including how language is represented and processed in the brain, the psychology of language, clinical applications of linguistics in treating language disorders and delays, how children acquire language, and the biological and evolutionary aspects of language.

In Carleton’s Bachelor of Science in Linguistics, students take a quantitative approach to linguistics and learn from a dedicated faculty with a diverse set of research interests, including theoretical and experimental approaches and methods. Students can choose from four concentrations to tailor their Linguistics degree to their interests:

Linguistic Theory with a Psychology Focus

Linguistic Theory with a Neuroscience Focus

Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders with a Psychology Focus

Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders with a Neuroscience Focus

The Bachelor of Science in Linguistics with a concentration in Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders is the ideal BSc degree for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in Speech-Language Pathology. Qualified students in Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders have the opportunity to take a practicum course that provides clinical experience in speech-language pathology.

Our Linguistics programs cover the following topics:

Phonetics: production, perception and acoustic properties of human speech sounds

Phonology: variations and patterns of speech sounds

Morphology: word categories, structure and creation of words

Syntax: structure of phrases and sentences

Semantics: word, phrase and sentence meaning

Language acquisition: how children learn their first language

Historical linguistics: language change and language relationships

Psycholinguistics: language processing and perception, language acquisition

Neurolinguistics: biological foundation and neuro-cognitive mechanisms of language

Communication disorders: disorders of speech, language, fluency, hearing and voice

Research methodology and statistics: experimental design and data analysis

Future opportunities

Graduates of a Linguistics program often carry on their studies in graduate school or enter the workforce. Linguistics grads find careers in speech-language pathology, natural language processing, branding/advertising, second language learning technology, artificial intelligence, speech recognition, governmental language policy, forensic linguistics, translation/interpretation, lexicography and more.
