Program Information

School:York University - Graduate Studies
Faculty:Graduate Studies
Field of Study:Linguistics
Description:The objectives of the PhD program are to train and educate candidates in linguistics. The two structural fields for the program are theoretical and applied linguistics. Both these fields are broadly defined. Theoretical linguistics includes phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language acquisition, and historical linguistics. Applied linguistics is often defined as the study of second language pedagogy, second language learning strategies, second language acquisition, and language assessment, as well as discourse analysis and language policy issues. Sociolinguistics, the study of links between language and society, and an area where our program has particular strengths, helps to bridge the fields of theoretical and applied linguistics. The program will encourage interaction and cross-fertilization between areas of interest represented within the program.
