Linguistics

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Linguistics is the scientific study of language and its structure. The discipline focuses on the form, meaning, and context of languages. Linguists study the similarities and differences between languages, seeking patterns and looking for meaning in those patterns.

Australia has the third largest number of foreign students in the world despite having a community of only 23 million. These are strong academic credentials, but Australian institutions are just as highly ranked as the cities that house them around the native land.

Eleven universities largely operate in this city. For instance, the popular University of Sydney, University of New South Wales and Macquarie University are located here.
