Course Summary

SHaPS is an international leader in the study of the perception and production of speech. Our graduates work in academia, industry, and the health and public sectors. We enjoy links to researchers around the world, as well as co-operation with major cochlear implant manufacturers and speech technology companies. Students carry out basic research within varied perspectives (phonetics, hearing, perception, neuroimaging, development, experimental psychology, speech technology and speech production), as well as translational research addressing hearing impairment, atypical perceptual and cognitive development, and language training technologies. The department uses both behavioural and neuroimaging approaches for speech perception and hearing research and 'acoustic analysis' as an approach for speech production research. Recent graduates have secured academic teaching and research positions in speech, hearing science, and phonetics at UK and international universities, and at leading companies in the speech technology industry.
