A bachelor’s degree is often the first degree earned by students in higher education, generally obtaining it in three to four years at the beginning of their college career. Though a bachelor’s degree usually provides enough experience to enter the workforce upon graduation, it is also possible to follow it with a master’s or doctorate to further specialize within a given field.

One question you may be wondering is, what is a Bachelor in Applied Linguistics? This degree encompasses real-world applications of linguistics as a science and teaches students the theory of languages and language learning so they can become better learners of language. Most programs deal with the major theories of linguistics as well as emerging technologies that make teaching and learning languages easier. Some, but not all, institutions require this degree to be taken in conjunction with the study of at least one foreign language.

In an increasingly global economy, linguistics serves as a bridge between different cultures. Understanding how to teach language helps people learn to communicate better at work and in their education.

The total cost of a Bachelor in Applied Linguistics depends on what school you choose to attend and how long the degree takes to complete. Four years is the average length of time spent studying for a bachelor’s degree.

There are a number of different jobs available for graduates with a Bachelor in Applied Linguistics. Many graduates elect to go into teaching, either as a teacher of a second language or teaching English to non-native speakers. Some elect to go into nonprofit work, while still others work as translators or interpreters of another language. Most available jobs are in the private sector, though some government positions are available.
