Our MSc in Forensic Speech Science combines general linguistic-phonetic theory and method with extensive practical experience in analysis of forensic materials.
We have designed the MSc in conjunction with one of the world's leading forensic speech laboratories, JP French Associates, and you'll have the opportunity to go on site and observe the working practices of the laboratory.
You'll learn about theoretical and methodological problems in performing forensic speech and audio analysis. You'll be able to apply your skills and knowledge to recorded materials from real criminal cases, as well as develop expert witness communication skills. The course also enables you to perform original research in speaker comparison and speech content analysis.
The MSc provides you with the necessary skills for further work in the forensic domain and related employment. It is also excellent preparation for a PhD in phonetics, sociolinguistics, language variation and change, or acoustics.
