Points of Pride
Speech Language Hearing Sciences
Karley Vetter, Speech Language Hearing Sciences
"The Speech Language Hearing Sciences program is very intense, but the professors are really interactive and they’re awesome at helping you understand the material. It’s been really rewarding and exciting."
"I have a very close relationship with the faculty. They’ve been professors to me, but they’ve been role models, too. That’s really been inspirational of how you want to treat your own clients and how you want to incorporate their philosophy. Their compassion and understanding is really helpful. The feedback you get from your professors is a huge confidence builder, and so that really helps with how you feel going out and just diving into the workforce and getting to know your clients."
Alicia Jeromchek, Speech Language Hearing Sciences
"The program has well-structured courses, allowing for development of skills from the introductory courses through the 400-level courses. Many of the courses allow for hands-on experience with tools and equipment that allow for great learning opportunities, especially the clinical experience course. Group work in many courses is also beneficial because speech-pathologists or audiologists are required to work as part of a team. This major allows for a challenging education to prepare you for graduate school and prepares students clinically to work with clients." "The professors offer great advice and access of resources. During my undergraduate degree, I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue to graduate school for speech-language pathology or audiology so I talked with some of the professors in both areas and they really helped me with the concerns I was having. Also they gave me the opportunity to participate in both speech-language clinical experience as well as audiology clinic, which was beneficial to my decision." "This program allows for a close-knit experience with one's class. Students will get to know their peers well and learn to work as a team, which will be beneficial for a career as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist."
