SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCES

HCS3SHS

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Scientific advances over the course of the twentieth century have resulted in numerous specialised techniques for investigating sound, speech and hearing. These techniques will be introduced in this subject and draw on key concepts from basic acoustics and the physics of objects in motion . They include analysis of sound waves and speech, the psychology of sound perception, as well as techniques for gauging hearing ability and hearing loss. The overall aim of this subject is to enable students to explain perceptual, acoustic, aerodynamic and physiological aspects of the speech signal in terms of relevant basic science and also gain the knowledge needed to liaise as professionals with sound technicians and engineers.
