Pre-Speech Language and Hearing Sciences

Students majoring in Pre-Speech Language and Hearing Sciences prepare for professions to help people who have difficulty speaking and hearing due to a variety of causes. The study of communication disorders involves understanding the normal development of speech, language and hearing, as well as learning how to diagnose and treat communication disorders in adults and children.

Where It Will Take You

A Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) is a pre-professional degree that prepares students for graduate work in either audiology or speech/language pathology and a variety of other graduate experiences in social service, special education, and health care. A master's degree is necessary for licensing and certification as a speech/language pathologist, and a doctoral degree is required for an audiologist. Graduates find careers in hospitals, speech and hearing clinics, schools, educational programs for children with disabilities, the armed services, private practice, and government health agencies.
