Areas of Study

Course Overview

The series of Advanced Topic classes are designed to introduce foundational issues in Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences. It is designed to explore theories, research methodologies and translation to clinical practice in each of the three areas. Students can expect to build a foundation of knowledge that can inform research in hearing, speech, and language sciences. The Language Science Course will include the study of theoretical constructs (principles, parameters and non-linear phonology), methods (psycholinguistics, grammaticality judgment, reaction time) and terminology (cohesion, agreement, features) of the Language Sciences (linguistics, neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics).

Prerequisite: Open to HSLS students only or permission of the instructor.
