The undergraduate program in speech and hearing sciences is pre-professional and grounded in the liberal arts. The course of study emphasizes physiological, neurological, behavioral, and psychological dimensions of normal development, fundamental communication processes, and disorders of communication.
The academic teaching and learning philosophy is student-centered, research-based, and writing intensive. Students in the undergraduate program prepare for study in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology and are encouraged to infuse science and research to clinical practice. Students learn to understand the diagnostic and therapy needs of individuals of all ages seen with a wide variety of speech, language, learning, and hearing problems.
The master of arts in speech and hearing sciences at WSU Spokane offers unique clinical and research experiences in speech-language pathology.
