Optional modules may include courses on linguistic theory and structure, language development, language disorders, and interpreting, among many others.

Modules will be taught by staff within the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, including staff at the UCL Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL), a world-renowned centre of excellence for research on language, communication and cognition in deaf adults and children.

This programme is designed for students who want to deepen their knowledge of language sciences prior to registering for a research degree.

The programme also provides a basis for the application of this knowledge in applied settings in a range of areas including teaching, technology, marketing, and consultancy. It is also appropriate for individuals currently working in education, speech and language therapy, sign language teaching, and sign language interpreting/translation who wish to extend their knowledge of this field.
