Two new M.Sc courses at Loughborough University

In the fast growing areas of communication, Loughborough University's Department of Social Science has introduced two new courses in M.Sc.

They are Conversation Analysis and Discursive Psychology.

Programme information:

*Conversation Analysis:

It deals with the study of the ways in which speakers manage the subtle features of conversation to perform their social actions.

This unique programme will delve into the major traditions, theories and debates surrounding the field of conversation analysis. Modules taken will cover the process of collecting, transcribing and analysing data - from everyday phone calls, family mealtimes and playground interactions, to clinical encounters, emergency helplines and courtrooms. Other modules will investigate the role that various forms of software and technology support analysis, as well as teaching you how to generate findings that are useful to practitioners. Programme content also teaches you how to work with practitioners to evaluate and improve practice.

*Discursive Psychology:

It deals with the study of how psychological phenomena such as knowledge, memory, motivation, attitudes and feelings are constructed and managed in talk and texts, and the consequences for people relationships with one another.

This unique programme will delve into the major traditions, theories and debates surrounding the field of discursive psychology. Modules taken will cover the process of collecting, transcribing and analysing data - from everyday phone calls, family mealtimes and playground interactions to clinical encounters, emergency helplines and courtrooms. Other modules will investigate the role that various forms of software and technology support analysis, as well as teaching you how to generate findings that are useful to practitioners.
