The Bachelor of Arts (BA) is Otago's most flexible undergraduate degree programme, enabling students to study from a selection of more than 40 arts and social science subjects, as well as papers offered elsewhere in the University. Academic breadth is complemented by in-depth knowledge gained through majoring in one or two subjects with the option of minors in one or two others.

Students are taught by research-active scholars, are expected to undertake a diverse range of learning tasks and are challenged to develop their intellectual independence. Graduates of the programme are well-informed, versatile, independent thinkers with the information literacy, communication, research and interpersonal skills necessary for a career or further academic study. The completed BA is an entry qualification for the PGDipArts in the major subject of the degree.

English and Linguistics

It is possible to complete a specialised major in English and Linguistics for a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree.

Language is power. We use language for the whole range of activities that make us human, from passion to politics; we negotiate through language in every waking moment of our lives. Literature is language at its most effective.

English at Otago is designed to fulfill three main aims: opening up the vast and delightful range of literatures written in English; providing a grasp of the concepts and techniques for analysing texts; and improving communication skills of every kind.

By taking English you will find your perceptions sharpened, your understanding deepened and your enjoyment enhanced - for life. Above all, you will equip yourself for a career in almost any sector of society.

Linguistics comprises different areas of specialisation:

  • phonetics (the study of speech sounds)
  • phonology (the study of sound systems)
  • morphology (the study of the internal structure of words)
  • syntax (the study of how words are combined into sentences)
  • semantics (the study of meaning)
  • pragmatics (the study of meaning in relation to the way language is used)
  • socio-linguistics (the study of language in its social context)
  • historical linguistics (the study of language change)
  • universal typology (the study of language universals and differences)
  • acquisition (the study of how first and second languages are learned)
  • applied linguistics (the application of linguistics to language teaching and other professional activities)
