The International M.Sc./Ph.D. Program for Experimental and Clinical Linguistics (IECL) at the University of Potsdam provides an advanced academic training in research methodology in a flexible format and prepares you for a scientific career in the areas of psycho- and neurolinguistics. The IECL has a specific focus on the neuro-cognitive mechanisms underlying language processing, language acquisition, their disorders, and their rehabilitation.

You can develop your own area of interest within a research framework of first language acquisition, speech and language processing, evidence based practice in speech and language disorders, and multilingual language acquisition and processing. The language of instruction is English.

After having obtained a qualified masterís degree, you can directly enter the PhD program and follow your individual research projects.
The teachers and labs that contribute to the IECL are affiliated to the Research Focus Cognitive Sciences offering a unique research infrastructure with laboratories equipped to study language comprehension and production across different populations and across the whole life span.
