KU's Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences & Disorders, together with the department of Hearing & Speech at the University of Kansas Medical Center, represent one of America's premier research and training programs in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences. Beginning with the undergraduate experience, you'll find stimulating coursework, clinical observation, and a variety of 'hands-on' laboratory projects.
If you're looking for a career in speech, language or hearing, or are interested in normal communication development and communication disorders, then a B.A. or B.G.S. in Speech-Language-Hearing might be for you.
During your junior and senior years, you may participate in research or clinical experiences. You'll work in research laboratories studying language development and disorders, speech acoustics and perception, communication neuroscience, reading, and alternative and augmentative communication.
Many of our students also participate in KU's Schiefelbusch Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic.
