The Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Department offers a comprehensive program accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) that explores the normal and disordered processes of human communication. The curriculum includes studies on a variety of communication disorders and clinical procedures and is complemented by the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic on campus – which includes a Regional Assistive Technology Center and an Auditory Processing Disorders Clinic, and provides a real-world setting for students to gain hands-on clinical practice experience.
Students have the opportunity to participate in valuable educational activities and community service events through the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association in conjunction with Sertoma (SERvice TO Mankind), a local organization that promotes better speech and hearing in the community. The program prepares students for admission to graduate level study of speech-language pathology or audiology, or to pursue careers in hearing conservation, education of the hearing impaired, and other related areas.
