The Language and Linguistic Science department at the University of York is happy to announce that an MA programme in Phonological Development in Childhood has been approved to start in Autumn 2010. As far as we know, this is the first such programme in the world. It will cover issues in phonological development, with a cross-linguistic emphasis, and will draw on both linguistic and psychological perspectives on development and learning. The programme will draw on ongoing departmental research into perception and production in infancy and toddlerhood, both observational and experimental. Some fellowships are likely to be made available for the programme.
