Studying Linguistics in New Zealand

Linguistics is the principle study of the sound, grammar and meaning of different languages spoken by different people and cultures. Topics range from the analysis of advertising and marketing to the political rhetoric of world leaders, and students will learn the most effective ways of looking at and dissecting language.

During the first year of study, students will be introduced to modules on phonetics and phonology, syntax and sociolinguistics before moving on to more complex subjects in the second and third years, such as language acquisition and difficulty in learning language through age.

Linguistic graduates will find career opportunities in the areas of language therapy, translation, teaching English as a first or foreign language, interpretation and journalism.
