Offered by the School of Linguistics and Language Studies, the graduate diploma (GDip) in Linguistics is unique and will appeal to current Carleton graduate students interested in interfaces between linguistics and related fields. There are increasing employment opportunities in this area of study. The GDip is open to both PhD and Master’s students from disciplines other than linguistics and will allow them to incorporate the study of linguistics into their primary program. At this time, it is designed primarily for students pursuing Carleton degrees in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies, Cognitive Science, Anthropology, French and English. The program culminates in a Capstone Examination which ensures they have acquired the same level of linguistics knowledge as graduates from the MA in Linguistics.
