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.

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.
