This specialisation is designed to give students a strong understanding of language structures and use across a variety of languages. In the core units, you will explore the sounds and grammar of Australian English and how these differ from other English varieties and other languages around the world. Students also explore how we use language differently according to context and how language varies between different social groups. In elective units you will have the opportunity to specialise in areas such as literacy, second language acquisition or language and identity.


For the schedule of units required to complete a given course in this area of study, refer to the Handbook entry for the relevant course.
