Program Description

Bachelor in Linguistics

The Bachelor in Linguistics is a degree program that prepares teachers of English and speakers of other languages. The program combines strong academic preparation with practical training in language pedagogy. To be secure in the classroom and credible when they train others, teachers must have considerable practical experience. Hence, the majority of courses are organized around practical tasks of the type the students will encounter in the future.
