Boost your employability and be exposed to new perspectives and perceptions. This degree opens the door for you to engage across societies and cultures as an informed and adaptable global citizen. When you study a language at Griffith, you won’t just learn to speak and write the words, you’ll also study linguistics—the science, nature and function of language and how it is used in society. Understanding how languages are developed and used will help you gain a solid understanding of your chosen language. You’ll apply your knowledge of linguistics and your chosen language in real world challenges including second language learning and teaching, intercultural communication, and translating and interpreting. This degree caters to all skill levels, from beginner to fluent. You’ll learn in small classes, where you’ll receive individual attention. You’ll also be exposed to the cultural context of your chosen language. For more course information, visit Bachelor of Languages and Linguistics at GU
