    Applied linguistics is an interdisciplinary field of linguistics which identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems. In many ways, it is a fusion of many of the language courses you have studied, so it adopts perspectives on language in use spanning critical discourse analysis, linguistic ethnography, sociocultural theories, literacy, stylistics and sociolinguistics. The course is designed to be primarily exploratory, providing a fitful panoramic view of ways in which linguistics can be applied. But it is also intended to provide participants with an opportunity to engage with at least one real-life issue within their context, using the principles of applied linguistics. In this second sense, participants will have the opportunity to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
