1 PhD Programs in Applied Linguistics in South Africa 2023

Overview

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Applied linguistics is the study of language and its use in practical contexts. Branches of applied linguistics include critical studies, language pedagogy, lexicography, and forensic linguistics. The field of study analyzes language in order to better understand the use of it around the world.
