The 108-credits combined BA program is designed for students who have an interest in both linguistics and English literature.
In both teaching and research, the Department combines a strong emphasis on English and American literature and culture with a wider, comparative and interdisciplinary framework. The approach to literature and culture is diverse, both theoretically and methodologically, and literature and culture are examined from a variety of cognitive, formalist, historical, sociological, and psychological perspectives. The Department also encourages combined studies and interactions with other fields in the humanities and social sciences.
The Department offers introductory and advanced courses in the core areas of linguistics– namely syntax (sentence structure), semantics (structure of meaning), phonology (structure of sounds), lexicon (mental dictionary) – as well as in more applied areas of linguistics, such as language acquisition (how children acquire language), language disorders, neurolinguistics (language and the brain), bilingualism, English as a second language, linguistics and science fiction, and theory of communication.
