Speech and Hearing Science

Speech and hearing science programs at the College of Health Solutions investigate the science of spoken human communication. PhD scholars are trained and equipped to make tomorrow’s discoveries in the science of speech, language and hearing. Clinical speech-language pathologists and clinical audiologists hope to treat the millions of people challenged with speech, language and hearing disorders and diseases through their vibrant undergraduate program, the Speech and Hearing Clinic and strong community partnerships.

Hearing for Humanity, a study abroad project, offers support for communities overseas. In keeping with this global mission, each year since 2010, a team of audiologists and Doctor of Audiology students travel to sub-Saharan Africa to provide hearing health care services, from diagnostic testing to fitting of hearing aids, as well as clinical training.
