Knowledge of a Discipline
Graduates will be able to analyse selected basic problems and issues in linguistics, using methodology and discourse appropriate to the discipline. Graduates will be encouraged to develop a global perspective and intercultural competence in their professional lives. Linguistics is by its nature oriented globally, because of its primary concern with human languages.
Graduates will be able to communicate effectively in the basic area of linguistics, and in particular, will hone their online communication skills and their written skills through assessment tasks such as essays.
Many of the units in the degree concentrate on the analysis of language data. Graduates will thereby develop some basic capabilities in solving problems and in applying logical and creative thinking to a range of linguistic issues.
Being a fully online degree, graduates will have developed some competencies in information literacy at levels acceptable in linguistics and appropriate for the University level.
Ethical Conduct and Social Responsibility
The nature of study in linguistics prepares graduates to be committed to ethical action and social responsibility.
Graduates will be prepared for lifelong learning through being exposed to a range of issues in human languages and societies.
Independence and Collaboration
Graduates will be encouraged to learn and work independently. Graduates, where appropriate, will have the opportunity to work collaboratively online to collectively solve problems in some units. Students in all units will be engaged in collective discussions online geared towards group learning.
