Linguistics Minor -- Recommended subjects?
« on: February 24, 2019, 09:04:51 am »

As someone considering TESOL as a career path, I'm pursuing a Linguistics and Applied Linguistics minor to satisfy the relevant secondary learning area for the Masters of Teaching (Secondary). I was wondering if anyone doing a Linguistics major/minor could chime in on the best second and third year subjects for me to take?

For instance, I'm instinctually leaning towards Phonetics and Syntax for my second year (given that those are the compulsory subjects for the major), but heard the latter was very difficult without Grammar of English. Would it be to my detriment, in terms of the overall Linguistics experience, not to do Phonetics in order to do GoE instead?
