Theoretical and methodological principles of teaching linguists: the Ukrainian case

Keywords: linguistics, linguist, educational program, universities, Ukraine.


Technological progress has become a catalyst for the emergence of such interdisciplinary fields as linguistics and for the need for relevant specialists in the labor market. The purpose of this article is to analyze the theoretical and methodological aspects of linguists` training in Ukraine. The latest scientific researches and publications on the subject of training linguists in both domestic and foreign educational institutions were analyzed. The methods of system analysis, critical analysis of scientific and methodical sources, search, generalization, and structural-functional method were used for this study. The article highlights the structure, features, and principles of linguists` education on the basis of educational and professional programs of Ukrainian universities. The purpose of the training is to educate specialists which are able to navigate freely in various linguistic theories, carry out scientific analysis of language material, apply theoretical knowledge, strategies and methods (including innovative ones). The analysis of the education of linguistics students proved that the structuring of the components of the theoretical part of the educational process is based on fundamentalization and the principles of subject specialization, while the selection of teaching methods focuses on the need to train competent specialists with practical skills. The basis of such training is based on student-centered, competence-based, systemic, integrative approaches using innovative, interactive technologies, which allows training specialists capable of effectively carrying out professional, scientific and innovative activity, integrating modern information and communication technologies.
