Course Summary

The specialisation in speech sciences takes advantage of expertise in the Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences research department to provide a thorough multidisciplinary introduction to current research in the speech sciences. Students take a core set of modules building a foundation to study current issues and research in the language sciences, specialising in language development. In selecting the modules for their specialisation, students will be able to take full advantage of the breadth of expertise in language research in the UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences. Final research project submissions are in September, meaning that the programme runs over the course of 12 months (full-time) or 24 months (part-time).

Careers

The majority of students who graduate from Language Sciences MSc programmes go on to further study or research. Recent graduates have gone on to PhD study in UCL, and in other UK and overseas institutions. Others have gone to work in related industries (for example in speech technology industries, cochlear implants manufacturers) or in education. The skills that the MSc develops - independent research, presentation skills, and statistics - are transferable skills that are very highly sought after outside academia
