SLHS 1301W: Physics and Biology of the Voice

4 CreditsPhysical SciencesWriting Intensive

The goal of this course is to provide students with a background of the core physical, linguistic, and perceptual concepts related to speech. This course talks about the acoustics of speech as well as the main principles that are used to describe articulation and phonetics. We will examine the aerodynamic and acoustic principles that underlie sound production. The course also covers basics of auditory perception and how computers can be used to analyze and manipulate speech. Through an emphasis on physical analysis grounded in scientific principles, this course satisfies the university's physical sciences with laboratory liberal education requirement.
