UCL Psychology and Language Sciences


MSc in Language Sciences with specialisation in Sign Language and Deaf Studies

The MSc in Language Sciences is an umbrella degree in the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences that provides students with an opportunity for the in-depth study of one or more areas of the Language Sciences. One of these specialist areas is Sign Language and Deaf Studies, supported by DCAL staff.

We particularly encourage applications from deaf and hard of hearing students and/or students from minority ethnic groups who are currently under-represented at UCL and DCAL.
