The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) at Purdue University is in the College of Health and Human Sciences. Undergraduate majors in SLHS obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. Courses at the undergraduate level are designed to introduce students to basic processes of communication, speech, language, and hearing, and to disorders of communication, and eligible students may also earn course credit working as research assistants under the supervision of department faculty. Students who qualify also have the opportunity to participate in clinical observation and a practicum during the latter stages of their program. Our undergraduate program provides a firm foundation for future graduate study in the speech, language, and hearing sciences within the framework of a well-rounded and comprehensive undergraduate education.
