Revision history [back]

As far as I know, there are no hard and fast rules about what subject you need to have studied to do a PhD in Neurolinguistics. Neurolinguistics is very interdisciplinary. I know people with a background in psychology or educational studies doing neurolinguistics now. Have you taken neurolinguistics courses during your Master's? For your PhD, you need to find a topic that interests you and a supervisor who supports you. A PhD requires sufficient background knowledge of the topic. So if you have not taken any courses in this field of study or have not gained knowledge through independent study, I suppose it could be difficult to find a supervisor.

I'd say it depends less on the subjects you have studied in the past, and more on how much background knowledge you have that is relevant for your topic of interest. For a PhD in Neurolinguistics, you also need to be familiar with research methodology and statistics.

Best of luck with your future studies!
