The Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) undergraduate program is designed to build a strong foundation in human language and communication. Students can major in the field and supplement their studies with a minor in speech and hearing or linguistics.

All undergraduate students have access to exciting research opportunities with faculty as well as opportunities for fellowships, conference attendance and study abroad programs at clinics and universities around the world.

    “For my Voice and Diction class, we had to perform three observations, [and] it turned out to be the best experience I ever could have had. Not only was I able to learn about Transgender Vocal Therapy, but I was able to witness a particular client’s personal development. … It was incredible to me, and sparked a passion for speech that I hadn’t realized before.”
