Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Linguistics Trinity Western University




Course info


TWU offers diverse and thought provoking courses and experiences to arm students with the skills and know how to make a contribution on the international stage.

Linguistics is the study of language and how it’s used in society.

Our courses teach you the skills you need to learn and describe languages, even languages that do not have a written alphabet. These skills include the recognition and pronunciation of non-English speech sounds, alphabet formation, description of grammars, and systems of meaning and beliefs. Our courses are based on proven techniques drawn from decades of research in hundreds of languages.

As a student of Linguistics, you will have opportunities in the areas of translation, cross-cultural communication, international development (especially literacy programs), speech-language pathology, and teaching English as a second language.

Graduates of our Linguistics program go on to a variety of fields, such as translation, cross-cultural communication, international development (especially literacy programs), speech-language pathology, and teaching English as a second language. Our program is also excellent preparation for students who wish to continue their studies with a Master of Arts in Linguistics or a Master of Arts in TESOL through TWU’s School of Graduate Studies, a Master of Arts in Linguistics and Translation through TWU’s Graduate School of Theological Studies, or a graduate degree in speech-language pathology at another institution.
