Speech and Language Sciences B.Sc

Course description
This multidisciplinary degree explores linguistics, phonetics, psychology, neuroscience, neuropsychology, education and language pathology.

You'll learn about disorders of speech, language and literacy in children and adults through experiences inside and outside the classroom.

The course differs from many comparable degrees in the UK. Most focus on typical communication alone or on the nature of communication impairment in the context of speech and language therapy. Our BSc explores human communication and impairments of human communication in their own right, but also contends that studying communication disorders can deepen our understanding of communication processes.

You'll gain a good understanding of human communication based in traditional subjects such as linguistics and psychology and you'll apply your knowledge to the study of communication disorders and their effects on the individual in society. You'll also have the option to select topics in areas of special interest within the course structure.

Our tutors will help you plan your studies throughout your course. We'll help build your confidence in applying your knowledge and skills through project work and volunteering in our in-house clinic or through Sheffield Volunteering.

This degree provides a strong academic basis for applying to train as a speech and language therapist at postgraduate level.
