The Course

Summary

This three-year course combines psychology, linguistics and social science to study how people communicate. You'll learn about disorders of speech, language and literacy in children and adults through experiences inside and outside the classroom. You'll gain a good understanding of human communication based in traditional subjects such as linguistics and psychology and will apply your knowledge to the study of communication disorders and their effects on the individual in society. There are options to select topics in areas of special interest within the course structure. 

The learning and assessment percentages could vary depending on the modules you choose. On completion of this course our BSc graduates are making a difference in areas such as education, social work and research. Some go on to postgraduate study, qualifying as psychologists, teachers, doctors or speech and language therapists.
