The most salient characteristic of Linguistics from Western University - Canada is its exceptionally strong interdisciplinarity. We conceive of language as by equal measures a system of symbols which people know and use.


Linguistics from Western University - Canada is not “formal linguistics”, nor “applied linguistics”, nor even a pairing of each. It is, instead, a rich melding of frameworks and methods, built around close ties with sister disciplines: anthropology, computer science, communication disorders, language teaching, philosophy, and psychology.

Career Prospects

The objective of the MA program in linguistics is to foster scholarship and research in the discipline, both for students who are planning on continuing with a PhD program in linguistics and for those who will be seeking professional work in a range of fields (such as education, communicative disorders, speech technologies, or elsewhere) for which a background in linguistics is either required or very useful.
