Any discipline of knowledge is built upon the relationships between concepts and terms.  We create new terms to describe new concepts. The aim of this course is to lay the foundations for understanding the concepts and techniques of the terminologist when naming these concepts.
On completing this course, students should be able to:
  1. Discover and apply the principles and methodology of the discipline of terminology and creation of term banks for discovering and managing selected fields of knowledge; and
  2. Design and produce practical monolingual and bilingual glossaries creatively in selected fields of specialization.
