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

Our MA in Psycholinguistics 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, and be introduced to research questions and methodologies. You'll also be able to perform original research in psycholinguistics, and you'll apply your skills and knowledge to linguistic data.
