Career Preparation

Linguists with the specialized training of the MA Linguistics program at TWU are in high demand in cross-cultural mission organizations, particularly in the areas of translation, consulting and literacy work. Graduates of this program will have a strong background in both theoretical and applied linguistics and their training will prepare them to carry out language analysis and orthography development, and to establish long-term language-based projects in the developing world. Some students will have had opportunities to apply their knowledge and practice their skills through participation in teaching assistantships. Graduates successfully completing the program will be prepared to go on to doctoral studies in linguistics.
