The purpose of this course is to enable students to apply discourse analytic approaches to language used in institutional and media contexts.
Through studying practical applications of discourse analysis to real-life situations, this course aims at understanding how language plays a crucial role in society. Students will be expected to present their own data analysis along with presenting key concepts in relevant references.
