Areas of Interest

Vibha Kaushik, an M.A. student in her first year, completed her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Social Work, and Master’s degree in Social Work, specializing in Industrial Relations and Personnel Management, in India where she was born and raised.  She took several social work initiatives after working for few years in the corporate world.  Having lived in Germany for ten years, she had the opportunity to experience the German language from an outsider’s perspective and later as a fluent speaker, which further motivated her to pursue her second Master’s degree, in German.  With her background as a social worker and mother of a young boy who picked up German as his second language in local schools in Germany, she became deeply interested in second language pedagogy.  For her Master's thesis, Vibha plans to focus on heritage language learners of German, in Canada’s fifteen leading research universities.
