BA in Speech Language Hearing Sciences

The BA in SLHS offers you a broad liberal arts education in an interdisciplinary field of study. The coursework provides a background in human communication, including the production and understanding of speech and language. We often take these complex processes for granted, but a disorder or problem in one of those areas caused by disease, a problem at birth, or aging can have a profound effect on a person’s life. The field of SLHS defines normal and disordered communication and provides the research foundation for the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders.
