Studying


At the University of Oulu, Phonetics can be studied up to advanced studies, but only as a minor subject.

Students of many major subjects have chosen a phonetic topic for their theses. The basic studies of Phonetics at the University of Oulu consist of courses that are common to all, the intermediate studies consist partly of study courses common to all and partly of studies chosen according to the student’s own area of interest. The advanced studies consist of only studies chosen according to the student’s own area of interest.

Phonetics yields useful theoretical and practical information for everyone working with spoken language, including students of languages and logopedics. Areas of application of phonetic knowledge include teaching of pronunciation in foreign language didactics, disorders of speech and language that are manifested in the speaking voice, clinical speech therapy in logopedics, and in technical subjects, signal processing.
