Are you wondering how to pronounce words in Indigenous languages like Kwak’wala? Aiming for a career as a language teacher or a speech language pathologist? Linguistics has a place for you.
By studying linguistics, we are opening a window into how the mind works.—Hossein Nassaji, department chair
Our department offers programs that explore everything from the structure of languages around the world, to how language is organized in our minds and how best to teach languages. We are also leaders in offering Indigenous language revitalization programs, in partnership with Indigenous Education at UVic.
