Subject: MA in Applied Linguistics - Online/ Univ of New England

Dear Colleagues and Friends
 
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about our new online 
MA in Applied Linguistics. I have included a description of the 
University of New England's (UNE) new online MA in Applied Linguistics 
program for your information. I would greatly appreciate if you could 
also forward this announcement to family, friends, colleagues, other 
institutions, current and former students, or anyone else who you think 
might be interested in an online MA (e.g., working overseas, can't study 
full-time due to work or family commitments, etc.), or who might know of 
others who might be interested in a post-graduate program in Applied 
Linguistics. Our first intake will be July 2001, with new intakes every 
semester afterwards (e.g., February, July).

The MA in Applied Linguistics is a popular degree at many universities 
in Australia and other countries for professionals in the fields such as 
education, language education and planning, TESOL, government, and the 
health and legal professions. The MA in Applied Linguistics will appeal 
both to those who do not have a background in Linguistics, but who wish 
to obtain a professionally relevant higher qualification, as well as to 
those considering post-graduate careers in the growing fields of Applied 
Linguistics and TESOL. This degree may also be of interest to those 
working with linguistic or cultural minorities.Our first intake will be 
July 2001, with new intakes every semester afterwards (e.g., February, 
July).

The course consists of 48 credit points of 400-level coursework. Core 
units include LING 450 (The Design of Language), LING 451 (Issues in 
Applied Linguistics), LING 452 (Intercultural Communication ),and LING 
453 (The English Language). Elective units include LING 461 (Reading the 
Research), LING 462 (Second Language Acquisition: Theory), EDST 423 
(Second Language Acquisition: Applications), LING 464 (First Language 
Acqusition), LING 465 (Applied Phonology), LING 466 (Australia's 
Indigenous Languages) and LING 490 (Special Research Topic). New units 
may be added as the program develops. All units are 6 cpts, with the 
exception of LING 490 (12 cpts). Any qualified student, internal or 
external, will be able to enrol.

The University of New England, a fully accredited university, was 
established in Armidale in 1954. It is the second oldest university in 
New South Wales. In addition to being the first Australian university 
established outside a capital city, UNE was also one of the first 
universities in Australia to focus on distance education. The email

Aim:
Aim: to give knowledge, skill and confidence to language professionals who
are coming to grips with corpora. Corpus work is fast becoming an everyday
activity in both the commercial and academic sectors of language study, and
still only a small proportion of those who are getting involved with
corpora have had even the most basic introduction to the management and use
of corpus resources. This course features the particular needs and
resources of multilingual corpus work, but not exclusively.

TWC courses are intensive and last for one week, ranging from language
policy matters to linguistic theory and description, featuring hands-on
experience, detailed exemplification and practical technical review. 

Suitable for:
-workers in the language industries
-researchers and scholars of language
-translators
-lexicographers
-computational linguists
-language teachers.


[The course is supported by a small grant from the EC-TELRI-II project
which enables the fees to be kept low; TWC regrets that no grants or
scholarships are available for this course.]
