Every year, SALSA and the Department of Linguistics organize the Beyond the BA Speaker Series forstudents interested in learning about the various options available to them after graduation in linguistics- and speech-related fields.
The event is split into two sessions focusing on different streams: one is for students interested in applying to graduate school, while the other is dedicated to showcasing different professions.
Graduate students and professionals are invited as guest speakers to share their first-hand experiences and knowledge. The informational sessions also include advice from the Linguistics Department Undergraduate Advisors on applications to graduate school for Linguistics as well as Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
Last year, our speakers were current graduate students from the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, two speech-language pathologists, an audiologist, as well as a lawyer and an English teacher in South Korea who did their undergraduate degrees in Linguistics at UBC.
