PS 330 - Psychology of Language

Language is the most important window to the world and at the same time a remarkable accomplishment.  Yet, the complex processes involved in language comprehension and production are often taken for granted. Consequently this class looks at the wonder of language from a psycholinguistic point of view dealing with the psychological processes involved in language.  The students spend a term living in Vienna and learning German. The new cultural and linguistic environment will embed this course in an evolving and first-hand cultural perspective on language.

NOTE: This course is offered during the regular semester and in the summer. For summer sections, the course schedule is condensed, but the content, learning outcomes, and contact hours are the same.
