M.A. in Linguistics

Linguistics has now emerged as an important branch of social sciences. Even though it has evolved today into an interdisciplinary study with western methodological orientation, it is not new to Indian academia. Pioneering attempts of sociolinguistic approaches can be found in the Indian tradition of Grammar and Philology. Along with language studies the subject incorporates the social and developmental factors which add an applied interdisciplinary module to the subject. The study draws its methodology from disciplines like sociology, linguistics, literature, culture studies etc. Such an interdisciplinary approach has wide and respective career. Therefore, the study can be of immense help to professionals like teachers, teacher-educators, speech therapists, information technologists, community developers, translators, literary workers, and other social scientists.
