University of Sydney Graduate Linguistics/Language Programs

Linguistics studies the full range of aspects of human language. It investigates the phonetics, grammar and semantics of individual languages, but through this seeks to uncover the features common to all human languages, the 'linguistic universals'. These are equivalent to the set of constraints on what is a possible human language, the so-called universal grammar.

Linguistics occupies a privileged position in the field of the humanities and sciences in that it touches on many of the central issues that concern a number of disciplines. Because language is concerned with communication between humans, it is relevant for the social sciences like anthropology and sociology; but because it is the central instrument for thinking and other cognitive tasks, it is also important to psychologists. Problems of language also loom large in fields like philosophy and literary criticism. Finally linguistics has many practical applications in fields like language teaching, general education, and computer science.

Systemic functional linguistics and the groundbreaking literacy initiatives of the 'Sydney School' in primary, secondary, tertiary and adult education are internationally recognised. Applied linguistics includes a focus on the process of teaching and learning a second language and is suitable for those involved in teaching English to speakers of others languages (TESOL), second language teaching (SLT) and teaching of modern languages. The program is also designed for those interested in applying linguistics in other professional areas, including translation, journalism & media, language policy and planning, website design, and socio-educational development work.
