Program Description

Speech and Hearing Science professionals evaluate, diagnose, and treat individuals with speech and hearing disorders, such as disorders of communication, the voice, swallowing, and cognition. The undergraduate major in Speech & Hearing Science (SPHS) is a pre-professional degree for speech language pathology and/or audiology. Students in the program complete courses in phonetics, anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing, language science, pediatric and medical speech-language pathology, hearing disorders and evaluation, and psychometrics (measuring mental abilities and processes). Electives in allied fields -biology, physics, and psychology, for example- are also required, along with 25 hours of field experience observing treatment practices for speech, language, and hearing. Students who complete this program earn a BS in Speech and Hearing Science and are then prepared to enter graduate programs in the field: a master's degree is required for professional practice in speech-language pathology, and a doctor of audiology (AuD) is required for professional practice in audiology.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the basics of human communication including phonetics, anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing, language development, hearing science, and speech science.
  • Demonstrate knowledge in the basics of speech, language, and hearing disorder assessment and treatment.
  • Demonstrate knowledge in the basics of research methods, clinical methods, and psychometrics with respect to communication sciences and disorders.

Career Opportunities

Because professional practice in the speech and hearing sciences requires master’s or doctoral degrees, most students continue on to graduate school after completing their undergraduate degree. Once a graduate degree is completed, students may become licensed Speech-Language Pathologists or audiologists, working in their own practices or serving in clinics, schools, and hospitals. Students who do not wish to enter graduate school immediately may still find employment in the speech and hearing sciences, as medical or research assistants or as staff in speech and language centers or clinics.
