Program Description: This is a one-year full-time or two-years part time programme which provides a Masters Degree in Language Sciences. There are two strands to the programme: Neuroscience of Language and Language Development and Disorders. The purpose of the programme is to prepare graduates in Linguistics, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychology, Health Science, Education and Allied disciplines for research-realted careers or to advance their knowledge in order to progress in current clinical/educational careers. The programme provides a theoretical background and practical experience for students to realise their potential as independent researchers. Students on this programme will learn about the theoretical and philosophical context in which research is designed, conducted and interpreted; they will get familiar with a range of research methods in cognitive neuroscience and a detailed expertise in a subset relevant to the student's own research interests.
