Course content

Explore the human mind through the structures and processes of language and communication.

Our course will provide you with a detailed foundation in the key theories and questions in psycholinguistics, while giving you practical training in the techniques, methodologies, and quantitative analysis methods associated with this field. You’ll analyse the ways in which language is represented and processed in real time, and study the factors that enable us to comprehend and use language. You'll have the opportunity to develop your interest in areas such as bilingualism, syntactic and semantic processing, and early phonetic and phonological development.

With world-class tutors, you’ll gain knowledge of the key theories, controversies, and research methods, and develop skills in understanding and designing experiments. You’ll apply your skills to psycholinguistic data, and learn to perform original research in psycholinguistics.

This course offers different routes to suit your level of experience studying linguistics.
