General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Leona Volterman 905-688-5550, extension 3374 Mackenzie Chown D450F brocku.ca/appliedlinguistics At Brock University, Applied Linguistics involves the application of linguistic theories and methods of linguistic analysis in such areas as first or subsequent language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language teaching methodology, and speech, language and hearing sciences. Linguistics focuses on language structure, first- and subsequent-language acquisition, the role of language in communication, and languages as products of cultures and other social groups. Linguists may or may not specialize in particular languages. Typically, they analyze similarities and differences among languages; such analyses can be used to develop, support or refute linguistic theories. Linguistics provides an opportunity to apply scientific reasoning to language-based problem solving. A background in linguistics is essential for language teachers, translators, speech-language pathologists, audiologists and many other language professionals. Additionally, linguistic knowledge can provide a valuable foundation for human interaction and communication in a wide variety of fields. The Department of Applied Linguistics offers programs of study leading to an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language, Hearing Sciences and Speech and Language Sciences. As well, the BA Honours Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language program offers a Co-op option. The Department also offers a four-year program of study leading to a BA with Major in Speech and Language Sciences, Pass BA degrees in Applied Linguistics, Hearing Sciences, and Speech and Language Sciences, and Certificates in Hearing Sciences, Speech and Language Sciences, and Teaching English as a Subsequent Language as well as a Minor in Applied Linguistics. Skills-development courses in American Sign Language and Academic English as a Subsequent Language are also offered.  
Applied Linguistics Go to top of document
Students have the opportunity to learn about theories concerning the analysis of language and their applications. Along with an introductory course in linguistics (LING 1F94), the Department offers foundation courses focusing on the sounds of language (phonetics and phonology), relationships among words in language (syntax), mutual influence between culture (and other group membership) and language (sociolinguistics), and ways in which language is used in context (pragmatics and discourse analysis) and is acquired.  
Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Go to top of document
This program provides background in theories and methodologies relevant to the learning and teaching of English as a subsequent language. Teaching English to non-English speakers is a complex process that requires an appropriate background in the theories and methodologies of language teaching and learning and a period of supervised teaching. For example, students have opportunities to learn about first- and second-language acquisition, the structure of English, language testing and methodologies for teaching specific language skills. Practice teaching is an essential feature of this program. A four-year co-op option is also available. Graduating students from the Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language program normally are eligible for employment as teachers of English as a Subsequent Language in a variety of settings. Outstanding graduating students may be eligible for admission to graduate programs in Applied Linguistics (TESL). Students interested in teaching language in the Ontario school system should consult the Ministry of Education and Training guidelines. In those guidelines, Language Courses mean English or any teachable (modern language) subject.  
Hearing Sciences Go to top of document
Students in this major have the opportunity to learn about basic sciences (e.g., biology, physics), basic communication processes, including the anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing, acoustics, linguistics, child language development and about selected disorders of human communication. Honours students have the opportunity to prepare for admission to masters or clinical doctorate programs in Audiology (AuD); admissions to graduate schools are, however, offered only on a competitive basis. The minimum qualification to practice Audiology in Canada and the United States is currently a Master's degree.  
Speech and Language Sciences Go to top of document
Students in this major have the opportunity to learn about basic sciences (e.g, biology), basic communication processes, including the anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing, acoustics, linguistics, child language development and about selected disorders of human communication. Honours students have the opportunity to prepare for admission to graduate study in Speech-Language Pathology; admissions to graduate schools are, however, offered only on a competitive basis. The minimum qualification to practice Speech-Language Pathology in Canada and the United States is a Master's degree. Students in the Hearing Sciences and Speech and Language Sciences BA Pass programs have the opportunity to prepare for admission to post-baccalaureate training as Communication Disorders Assistants (CDAs), or for admission to a Faculty of Education. Students wishing to major in any of the programs of study offered by the Department of Applied Linguistics must apply to declare their major. Declaration of Major forms are available on-line at brocku.ca/webfm_send/1400 and from the Office of the Registrar. Students in three- and four-year degree programs normally register for courses according to the program of study effective at the time they first declared their major. The faculty of the Department of Applied Linguistics believe that students benefit from a broadly based liberal arts background in conjunction with a Major in Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language, Hearing Sciences or Speech and Language Sciences. Students are therefore encouraged to acquire some background in other academic disciplines as part of their undergraduate education. Students who wish to pursue a four-year Honours degree must apply to be admitted to Year 4 after completing 15 credits. Application forms for Year 4 admission are available on-line at brocku.ca/webfm_send/1377 and in the Office of the Registrar. The requirements for graduation with a BA (Honours) are a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirements for a BA with Major are a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average.  
Co-op Program Go to top of document
The Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Co-op program combines academic and two volunteer work placements in language-rich environments over a four-year period. Students spend two years in an academic setting prior to taking the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Co-op students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see Schedule of Fees). Eligibility to continue is based on the student's major average and non-major average. Students with a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average will be permitted to continue in the program. Students with a major average lower than 70 percent may not continue in the Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Co-op program, but may continue in the regular Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language program. If a student subsequently raises his/her major average to 70 percent, the student may be readmitted only if approved by the Co-op Admissions Committee. All students in the Co-operative Education program are required to read, sign and adhere to the terms of the Student Regulations Waiver and Co-op Student Handbook (brocku.ca/co-op/current-students/co-op-student-handbooks) as articulated by the Co-op Programs Office. In addition, eligibility to continue in the co-op option is based on the student's major average and non-major average, and the ability to demonstrate the motivation and potential to pursue a professional career. Each four-month co-operative education work term must be registered. Once students are registered in a co-op work term, they are expected to fulfill their commitment. If the placement accepted is for more than one four-month work term, students are committed to complete all terms. Students may not withdraw from or terminate a work term without permission from the Director, Co-op Program Office. The Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Co-op designation will be awarded to those students who have honours standing and who have successfully completed the two Co-op placements.
