College of Health and Human Sciences

The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) offers a preprofessional undergraduate major focusing on the evaluation, treatment, and research of human communication and its disorders.  Students in SLHS gain a firm foundation for future graduate studies in audiology, speech-language pathology, and many other fields, as well as a well-rounded education that prepares them for life.

The preprofessional major provides students with the foundational, prerequisite courses needed to enter a graduate program in speech-language pathology or audiology, including advanced coursework in speech disorder, aural assessment and rehabilitation, and clinical methods.  Students may pursue specialized research interests within the field of communication sciences.  The major is suitable for students who wish to work in a clinical setting as speech-language pathologists or audiologists.
