71900 - Doctoral Research - 3 Credits
COURSE OFFERING:
The overall goal is to provide students with a sound overview of scientific research to prepare them to begin doctoral research.
Students’ ability to apply the scientific method to speech, language, and hearing research will be advanced.
Students will refine their ability to evaluate the research literature, formulate a research question, and develop a research design.
 


76400 - Instrumentation for Research in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences - 3 Credits
COURSE OFFERING: Spring 2016
Tue 10:00am - 1:45pm
Rm 7300
Instructor: Brett Martin
Office: 7400.07
Phone: (212) 817-8810

In this course students are introduced to various pieces of software, hardware, and laboratory techniques common to research laboratories in the speech, language, and hearing sciences. Basic principles underlying the generation, recording and analysis of sound are covered. Through lecture, hands-on experience, and structured experiments, students learn to use the basic tools that are important for research in this field.
Note: Course is in two parts, lecture and lab

The purpose of this class is to introduce students to the theoretical constructs, methods and terminology of the Language Sciences. Students will become familiar with the major theoretical approaches (e.g., Principle and Parameters; Non-linear Phonology), and the principal methods (e.g., grammaticality judgments, psycholinguistic experiments), and the basic terminology (e.g., feature, agreement, prototype, cohesion) used in linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics.
 


* 70600 - Hearing Science - 3 Credits
COURSE OFFERING: Spring 2017
Day/Time: Tue 6:30pm - 8:30pm
