|Program Description:||This interdisciplinary programme looks at language and linguistics from an applied, sociocultural perspective. The topics covered include: sociolinguistics, semantics, pragmatics, spoken and written discourse analysis, translation and interpreting theory, second language acquisition, orality and literacy, language and gender representation.
The programme consists of two core courses covering theory and method in the study of language in context, and discourse as social interaction. You also choose two options from areas that currently include: the relationship between orality and literacy, writing and speech; central issues concerning translation theory and practice, including the act of translation as a socio-cultural practice bound up with cultural beliefs and values; close analysis of texts in order to identify their stylistic features; the ways in which theories, interpretations, reading and writings are contextualised in their socio-cultural settings; theories and methods in the fields of second language acquisition and bilingual studies. You also produce a dissertation.
