What will I learn?

The specialisation in Neuroscience, Language and Communication, combines two previous routes (Linguistics with Neuroscience and Neuroscience & Communication) and provides a multidisciplinary introduction to research in the language sciences with a focus on neuroscience and linguistics. Students take a core set of modules building a foundation to study current issues and research in the language sciences, specialising in neuroscience, language and human communication. In selecting the modules for their specialisation, students will be able to take full advantage of the breadth of expertise in language research in the UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences.

Careers

The majority of students who graduate from Language Sciences MSc programmes go on to further study or research. Recent graduates have gone on to PhD study in UCL, and in other UK and overseas institutions. Others have gone to work in related industries (for example in speech technology industries, cochlear implants manufacturers) or in education. The skills that the MSc develops - independent research, presentation skills, and statistics - are transferable skills that are very highly sought after outside academia.
