Our program prepares students for careers in audiology, speech-language pathology and deaf education by providing:
- A well-rounded curriculum that students can tailor to suit their academic interests,
- A diverse and talented faculty,
- State of the art facilities,
- The opportunity to participate in research projects, and
- An excellent foundation for students who wish to pursue graduate work.
While many of our students opt to pursue graduate studies, many of our undergraduate alumni are pursuing successful careers as
- Teachers of English as a second language
- Early Childhood Educators
- Social Workers
- And more
Audiology (AUD) students learn about
- Normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, and hearing;
- Evaluating and treating hearing disorders; and
- Rehabilitating individuals with hearing loss.
Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) students learn about
- Normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, and hearing and
- The evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders.
SLP and AUD students are required to enroll in a course that enables them to complete the 25 hour observation requirement while enrolled at the University. Students who wish to be SLP assistants and AUD assistants still need to obtain 25 hours of clinic experience in order to become licensed.
