Evolution of Language and Cognition

This programme focuses on a treatment of language as a dynamic evolving system, bringing together origins, acquisition and change. The course provides a broader introduction to the field of language evolution and cognitive evolution and can form the basis for further (typically PhD) study for those wishing to continue their research. The programme draws on many disciplines including archaeology, biology, linguistics, neuroscience, informatics, philosophy and psychology; students study comprehensive synthesis of the most recent scientific findings relating to the origins and evolution of human language, gaining a firm basis for subsequent advanced specialised research and a broad awareness of issues and findings in the evolution of language and cognitive evolution across participating single-subject disciplines.
