DescriptionLinguistics is the scientific study of one of the most fundamental aspects of being human: using language to communicate. Linguists explore a range of fascinating areas, including how language is represented and processed in the brain, the psychology of language, clinical applications of linguistics in treating language disorders and delays, how children acquire language, and the biological and evolutionary aspects of language.

In Carleton’s Bachelor of Science in Linguistics, students take a quantitative approach to linguistics and learn from a dedicated faculty with a diverse set of research interests, including theoretical and experimental approaches and methods.

The Bachelor of Science in Linguistics with a concentration in Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders is the ideal BSc degree for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in Speech-Language Pathology. Qualified students in Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders have the opportunity to take a practicum course that provides clinical experience in speech-language pathology.
