More and detailed information about the department to be available on its upcoming official department website.
The African Languages and Linguistics Department (ALL) is a combination of staff in linguistics from the English Department, ALL and Centre for Language Studies. The Department offers courses in both linguistics and literature in vernacular languages.
The current department’s vision is to add languages that are crucial to the socio-economic and political survival of Malawi with its trading partners, both with its neighbouring countries and the global world.
In view of the vision, the department has a two-fold mission.
The Linguistics Program at Chancellor College emphasises basic techniques of description and analysis, empirically based inductive theoretical linguistics and applications of linguistics. The members of staff have expertise in a wide range of language areas. These include African languages and English.
The department also offers postgraduate programmes (PhD and Masters) in Applied and Pure Linguistics.
