Details

International English examines English in its many varieties with a focus on the international development of the language, extending far beyond native English speakers, and identifying features of the language essential to academic and professional performance. The Bachelor of Arts - International English major provides a basis for international students who may intend to teach English in different countries, or enter other language-centred professions, or for local students intending to pursue postgraduate qualifications in education or wanting to improve English skills.

The major provides studies in the varieties and structures of English, informed by specific studies in linguistics, English teaching and bilingualism, and language acquisition.
