In particular, the course seeks to provide advanced knowledge of theory and methodology as well as insights into scientific ways of working in the psycho- and neurolinguistic lines within the field of bilingual research. The latter also includes development of practical knowledge of experimental design and implementation, quantitative data analysis and presentation, as well as grounding these in applicable ethical standards of research.
