Information about graduate employment
The General Linguistics Ph.D. graduate is able to analyse in detail the variable and constant elements of language structure and function, both synchronically and diachronically. They understand the structure of linguistic theories, the way in which they are related, and also the empirical method of confirming or refuting them. They have an insight into the pragmatic and social context of language communication. The graduate’s training has prepared them for employment at specialised scientific, research, development, and tertiary education institutions. They can work in all spheres of public life where language and language communication play an important role.
