Applied Linguistics

Through teaching, scholarship and research, the Department of Applied Linguistics strives to advance the understanding of human identity, lifespan development and life participation, as reflected in language patterns, first and subsequent language learning and language use.

Applied Linguistics is concerned with the systematic study of language structure, the acquisition of first and subsequent languages, the role of language in communication, and the status of language as the product of particular cultures and other social groups.
