As a student on our MA in Phonetics and Phonology, you will study the sounds and sound patterns of the languages of the world from cognitive and social angles, combining theory and data. You will be guided by academics who are recognized experts in their field, with specialisms in language change, acquisition, prosody, spoken interaction and sociophonetics.
You will learn how to collect and analyse phonetic and phonological data, and how to use it to answer theoretical questions. You will be taught by a diverse group of researchers drawing on traditional and time-tested methods of analysis as well as cutting-edge technological advances. Our own research combines a focus on careful data analysis with a strong interest in theoretical questions. We hope to instill the same attention to theoretical and empirical detail in our students.
Our MA in Phonetics and Phonology will: *Deepen your knowledge of phonetics and phonology; *Give you practical training in using auditory and instrumental techniques in phonetic analysis, as well as a range of computational methods; *Provide you with a strong background in quantitative and qualitative data analysis;Enable you to apply your skills and knowledge to linguistic data; *Train you to carry out original research in phonetics and phonology.
You should normally hold or expect to receive at least a 2:1 or equivalent in your first degree. If your first language is not English and your first degree was not taken in an English speaking country, you will need to show evidence that you meet our English Language requirements.
