Undergraduate Program

Welcome to the undergraduate program of the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences. We offer the following programs:

Within the context of a liberal arts education, the curriculum provides students with fundamental knowledge of basic communication processes. Students learn about typical speech, language, and hearing development of monolingual and multilingual individuals, communication disorders that may arise throughout the lifespan, and the influence of cultural differences. The major prepares students for graduate study in the discipline of communication sciences and disorders. Although graduate study is required to practice as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist, other interesting career options may be pursued with a B.A. degree. The major or minor in Speech Pathology and Audiology, sometimes with additional study, can lead to careers in community outreach, public health, education, hearing aid dispensing, or even in the development and promotion of commercial products related to our field.

Many of our undergraduate faculty are clinicians working in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology in schools, nursing homes, hospitals, and private practice. Their experiences augment the classroom experience and provide expert knowledge and guidance for our students. Others of our undergraduate faculty are engaged in active scholarly pursuits through research and still others are engaged in administrative leadership. Together, the expertise of our faculty and the depth and breadth of their professional experiences enrich the academic studies of our students and help to prepare them for successful careers and lifelong learning.
