Learning Outcomes of UE

The course aims to foster among students, a process of personal appropriation of knowledge and reflection on a topic related to his own personal interests (his/her current professional specialization possible and / or future),and related to the oral side of human communication. The course does not aim at specializing in speech science, but rather offers an interdisciplinary view of phenomena, that have their source and / or their impacts in other fields (psychology, pedagogy, social sciences, etc.).. It is however also possible to seek specialization for students who wish to deepen their marstery of language sciences (on the basis of the student's personal project).

Content of UE

The topics covered by the teacher and lecturers are structured around the following main lines:

The human characteristics of language
Language acquisition
Language learning
Pathology and langage
Means and methods of research in linguistics

The list is not exhaustive and may be adjusted according to intersts of the moment.
