Congratulations on being accepted into a Bachelor of Arts degree program! You are embarking on an academic journey that will offer you the best of a broad liberal education with the ability to specialize in various fields of study.
Linguistics programs educate students in the scientific study of language. Linguistic analysis and theory (syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, phonetics, historical linguistics) constitute the core, which is enriched by the focal areas of language acquisition and processing and the analysis of Indigenous languages of Canada. Students in Linguistics can pursue a concentration in Applied Linguistics or Speech-Language Sciences.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered as either a B.A. or B.A. (Honours), both requiring the completion of 120 units and normally four years of full-time study.
