In this multidisciplinary specialisation, you will study human language, human cognition and human behaviour. With psychology and linguistics at its core, this specialisation takes a data driven approach.
Through your courses you will learn how to analyse complex data, including natural language data and data from experimental methodologies, to understand some of the fundamental characteristics of how human language works, and how it is linked to wider psychological and societal phenomena. Language, identity and culture are strongly intertwined, and are significantly involved in the wellbeing of individuals and communities.
This specialisation will set you up to continue on in areas such as language research, linguistics or psychology, language teaching, working with young children, communication skills and training, language-related policy development, data analysis and data sciences, language and ageing, language revitalization, or development of language technologies.
