In this interdisciplinary 3-credit 'transition-out' course, 3rd and 4th-year students examine, integrate, and apply their subject-specific knowledge through the lens of language and the framework of the language sciences, with a focus on themes of real-world importance. The course will be offered fully online.
The class structure is comprised of online lectures by Dr. Mark Turin (Anthropology & First Nations and Endangered Languages, UBC-V) and Dr. Elena Nicoladis (Psychology, UBC-O), and invited language leaders across campus and in the wider community, along with student-led reflections and presentations.
Through the course, students will lead their own exploration of language as it applies to all domains of human life, from the creation and acquisition of spoken language to writing systems, texts of all kinds, arts, culture, science, and technology. Student reflections include both individual written and oral work, small group discussions, and constructive critique of one another's work, as well as assignments in which students work in interdisciplinary groups to address specific questions of problems. Please note, this course is available to UBCO students through cross-campus registration. To register from UBCO, click here and submit the form using the button below.
