Carleton’s Grad Programs in Applied Linguistics & Discourse Studies


I’m Natasha Artemeva, graduate supervisor at the School of Linguistics and Language Studies. In both our graduate programs, Master’s and PhD, we offer two fields of study: applied linguistics and discourse studies. This makes our
program unique in North America because, in other universities, these fields of study often are or heard in different departments and in different faculties. We take a broad view of language in use
from teaching and learning to analyzing written texts to analyzing oral texts. This allows us to combine both fields of study – the areas usually covered by Applied
Linguistics and the areas usually covered by Discourse Studies. Our students have an opportunity to
pursue one of the few or mix and match courses to pursue their
own career goals. Come to our program and you will
experience its uniqueness. Hi I’m Nina Doré. I’m a PhD candidate in the program. My background is actually in fine art. I came to the MA program with a very
different background and big curiosity about language learning and language
teaching. I completed the MA and I continued onto the PhD here as well because it’s fantastic to be surrounded by
people who who have a great interest in solving
real-world problems. And I’ve been able to focus my studies on ASL teaching and learning American Sign Language – in
part because the program the School of Linguistics and Language Studies offers fantastic language programs which I’ve
been able to take. My name is Jenna klostermann and I’m a MA student in the
discourse studies stream of the Department. I started into the program
with a lot of ideas and speculation about language in
power. I was happy to develop a toolkit and
a theorized way of looking at language in use at particular interactions in particular
contexts. While I’ve been focusing on the work that Canadian visual artists do, I’ve been happy to be in conversation with other classmates and colleagues who are
looking at different issues. I hope you join us in the department
