Course Summary

Overview

The department combines basic research into the mechanisms of speech and hearing with applications to speech technology and hearing impairment, and takes an interdisciplinary approach to this work including Linguistics and Experimental Psychology. Our methodologies include behavioural experimentation; neuroimaging, neurostimulation and neurophysiology; acoustic and articulatory measurement of speech production; and computational modelling and machine learning. We test early development (infants and children) as well as normal adults and aging; normal hearing, hearing impairment, and speech in noise; and first and second language learning, bilingualism, and comparisons across languages and accents.

Careers

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.

Employability

Our programme is distinctive in terms of the depth and variety of approaches to speech research, which gives our graduates varied employment opportunities in teaching, research, health, and industry.
