The Linguistics course at Monash University offers a range of postgraduate units through Open Universities Australia. Students may take these units individually or study towards a range of qualifications offered in this subject area.
Applied Linguistics units do not assume students have a background in linguistics or prior knowledge of the discipline, and may be studied in any order. However, it is recommended that students with little prior knowledge of linguistics complete the core units General Linguistics and Language in Society before enrolling in elective units. Students must achieve a Credit average or better (60%+) to qualify for the Master of Applied Linguistics.
