The purpose of this course is to prepare graduates in linguistics, speech and language therapy, psychology, health science, education and allied disciplines for research-related careers in language sciences. The course is also appropriate for professionals in speech and language therapy who want to update their knowledge of the language sciences. A set of compulsory modules are complemented by in-depth specialisation in one of three streams: neuroscience, developmental, or multilingualism. The neuroscience stream focuses on current advances in neuroscience research (including functional MRI and electrophysiology of language) with close links to the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics. The developmental stream focuses on language development and disorders. The multilingualism stream offers expert teaching from members of the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism. A choice of multidisciplinary topics in the linguistic, cognitive and pedagogical aspects of multilingualism is offered.
Applicants are required to have an upper second or first-class Honours degree in a related field such as Linguistics, Psychology,Medical Sciences or Education. Evidence of recent study is normally required if the first degree was completed more than four years previously.
