The mission of the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences is to provide students with a liberal arts and sciences education, while introducing them to clinical practice, theories, methods and research in the discipline.
Our undergraduate students are well-grounded in the core knowledge of the discipline and in academic experiences that require critical thinking, application of theory, and scientific writing. Students are guided to demonstrate integration of theoretical and applied concepts from various academic disciplines. The B.A. degree in our discipline prepares majors for graduate study in the social, language and behavioral sciences, cognitive and neurosciences, speech-language-pathology, audiology and education. Students will also have the background for a variety of career options including rehabilitation and other allied health professions.
The Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences Department includes the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic that is housed in the Saltzman Community Services Center.
