Opportunities for Students - Research

Undergrad student works with Oliver Wendt

Researchers in SLHS are constantly seeking to improve our scientific understanding of the mechanisms of typical speech, language and hearing systems, to determine how these systems may be disrupted by injury, disease or age, and to develop therapeutic methods and instruments to prevent or remediate these disorders in the future.  This work provides the evidence on which clinical practice is based  Undergraduate students interested in learning more about how research is conducted in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences are encouraged to contact individual faculty who are investigating research on topics of interest. Students working in research laboratories may receive course credit for their participation by registering for either SLHS 490 or SLHS 498. These are variable credit courses that require the permission of the instructor to attend.
