  2. sposobnost opisivanja i uspoređivanja osnovnih pristupa i metoda u procesu psiholingvističkih istraživanja
  3. sposobnost objašnjavanja temeljnih pretpostavki svakog od osnovnih područja koja su predmet psiholingvističkog proučavanja
  4. sposobnost tumačenja bioloških, kognitivnih i društvenih faktora koji imaju utjecaj na odnos jezika i uma

Metode podučavanja
Gradivo se predaje u cjelinama koje obrađuju ključne teme s područja psiholingvistike. Nakon većine cjelina studenti rješavaju vježbe koje provjeravaju s nastavnikom na satu. Od studenata se očekuje da pročitaju relevantna poglavlja i dijelove iz obavezne literature te im se savjetuje da pročitaju određene dijelove iz dodatne literature, što im pomaže u stjecanju znanja o području koje se obrađuje. Tijekom rada na kolegiju studenti također gledaju dokumentarne filmove i video-isječke o određenim temama koje se obrađuju, a potiču se i da sami provedu malo istraživanje na zadanu temu. Dodatni materijali, handouti za predavanja te linkovi na sadržaje na internetu dostupni su studentima putem sustava za učenje na daljinu Omega.
Metode ocjenjivanja
Studentima se preporučuje redovit dolazak na kolegij i aktivno sudjelovanje u nastavi. Sredinom semestra ponavlja se dotad obrađeno gradivo, a u zadnjem tjednu semestra ponavlja se cjelokupno gradivo te se studenti pripremaju za ispit. Na kraju semestra studenti polažu pismeni ispit te dobivaju brojčanu ocjenu.
