These MSc and MRes programmes are ideal for students who wish to deepen their knowledge of one or more areas of the language and cognitive sciences prior to registering for a research degree. They are also suitable as stand-alone 12-month Master degrees for individuals currently working in areas such as education, speech and language therapy, audiology, and speech technology.
The MSc in Language Sciences is an umbrella degree that provides students with an opportunity for the in-depth study of one or more areas of the Language Sciences. Three specialisation strands are currently available: language development, linguistics with neuroscience, and speech and hearing sciences. Students take a set of mandatory modules and have the opportunity to specialise in one specific area of the language sciences through the selection of core and optional modules, and of their research project.
The MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition is an interdisciplinary degree in which students plan their own course of study with the guidance of an advisor, selecting from a range of courses across different UCL departments. The main focus of the programme is the Research Project and Research Plan, in which students work closely with a supervisor specializing in the student's chosen area.
