About Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences

Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) is a top-ranked program that offers an undergraduate major focused on the science of human communication, and disorders affecting our ability to communicate effectively. In SLHS you will learn about the mechanisms underlying our ability to hear sounds, understand language, speak efficiently, and swallow safely. You will gain foundational knowledge in the evaluation, treatment, and research driving the field of human communication and its disorders. Students use this knowledge to solve problems and impact communities across the state and country.

SLHS is housed in Lyles-Porter Hall and offers audiology clinics, speech, language, and swallowing clinics, and state-of-the-art research laboratories. The SLHS major provides students with the foundational tools for a variety of career opportunities in healthcare. Our courses fulfill requirements needed to enter graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology. The major also provides students the opportunity to pursue specialized research interests within the field of communication sciences and disorders.
