About Speech Science
Masters degrees in Speech Science involve advanced study of the anatomy and physiology of the human speech organs, including the mouth, ears and lungs.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Forensic Speech Science, and Speech & Language Therapy. Entry requirements usually include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Speech & Language Therapy, Medicine or Biology.
Speech Science refers to not only the production of speech, but also its transmission and perception. As such, you’ll be trained in detecting both normal function and malfunction. Practical training includes activities like physical examination, diagnostics and therapeutic techniques. You will usually undertake a placement within a hospital or health centre where you may work directly with patients.
There are a broad range of specialisations on offer, such as geriatric and paediatric medicine. For example, you might focus your studies on speech and language issues like loss of hearing or stuttering. Alternatively, you may wish to work with patients with congenital impairments such as cerebral palsy or autism.
Another possibility is Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), which uses technology and other communication methods to supplement or replace speech.
