Linguistics is offered as a major within our Bachelor of Arts and can be studied alongside a major from one of our other Humanities and Social Sciences discipline areas.
You can study a language by:
- enrolling in a Bachelor of Arts
- completing a Diploma in Languages alongside another La Trobe degree
- studying a language as an additional major in another La Trobe degree (subject space permitting)
- enrol in a single language subject as an elective
You can also consolidate your language skills by entering a Study Abroad program.
Bachelor of Arts
Students can expect to change careers up to 10 times over the course of their working life. When you study a language as part of a Bachelor of Arts, you can focus on your interests and career goals while increasing your appeal to employers around the world.
Diploma in Languages
Current students can enrol in a Diploma in Languages concurrently with most La Trobe undergraduate degrees. Depending upon individual circumstances, students will have the opportunity to participate in exchange, 'in-country' studies or other self-funded short overseas programs, immersing themselves in the culture and language and potentially reducing the time needed for completion of the award.
