Program Description: At UWI Mona, we offer both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses and degree programmes in linguistics. International students are welcome to join the department for a semester, a year, or more. Our courses are strongly Caribbean in focus, and offer opportunities for field experience in diverse Jamaican settings. Some of our signature courses in the B.A programme include 'Structure and Usage of Jamaican Creole', 'Caribbean Sign Language', 'Caribbean Dialectology', 'Language of Negotiation' and 'Creole Linguistics'. At the Master's level, we offer courses in the M.A. English Language which focus on the bilingual context of the English- and English-Creole speaking Caribbean, and the implications of that situation for curriculum design and English language teaching.
