These programs typically cover phonics, general linguistics, computational linguistics, English as a Second Language, and statistics. In order to improve the chances of getting a job some students choose a double major and have a secondary specialization in a subject such as computer science, psychology, education, the speech sciences, philosophy, foreign language, or journalism.
Degree requirements for this program are:
- F.A, F.Sc with at least second division
With a BA in linguistics you can do the same as those with a BA in any other liberal arts department: i.e. nothing specialized (at least off the bat). I understand that you don't want to pursue a graduate degree in your university, but consider a switch to another uni if you want to continue studying linguistics. Also, think about the many interesting sub-disciplines: neurolinguistics, acquisition research, language documentation, etc. Graduate students in linguistics tend to focus on a specific area of the field, sure they get the same degree, but they focus more.
If you are uninterested in a career in those ivory towers, you may want to do a MA in computational linguistics, forensic phonology, or whatever it is you like about the field.
