Recommended Combinations of Courses:
While we certainly don't expect students to begin the programme knowing which research area they plan to specialise in, the choice of Semester 1 courses can impact the kind of dissertation topic a student may wish to pursue, later. To that end, we recommend the following course choices:
For students interested in discourse analysis:
- Introduction to Phonology and Phonetics
- Introduction to Syntax, or Pragmatics (10 Credits)
For students interested in sociolinguistics:
- Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology
Students cannot choose Introduction to Phonology, and Introduction to Phonology & Phonetics together.
