The Auditory and Language Neuroscience MSc program offered at Arizona State University trains scholars in basic and applied research in the fields of auditory and language neuroscience to prepare them for doctoral-level graduate studies as well as for positions in science, health care and industry. In addition to cutting-edge coursework in neuroscience, this program also includes hands-on training in instrumentation such as neuroimaging, neurophysiology and clinical research applications. Students develop a strong foundation to conduct impactful neuroscience research related to auditory and language processing and human communication.
Graduates have acquired the experience with clinical and medical applications of their neuroscience-related expertise and the skills gained in lab rotations that give them increased marketability and enable them to be competitive for jobs in technology or further doctoral level training.
In the tech field, there has been significant interest in the areas of deep learning and artificial intelligence for speech. These fields rely on computational models of speech perception and production to perform automated tasks such as speech and speaker recognition.
Employment opportunities for graduates include team settings in clinical research centers and hospitals; with manufacturers of hearing aids, cochlear implants and EEG systems or augmentative and alternative communication applications; and with software development companies working with speech recognition programs and brain-computer interfaces.
