About the Department

We extend a hearty Kansas Jayhawk welcome from the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences & Disorders at the University of Kansas. Together with our sister department, Hearing & Speech (Dr. John Ferraro, Chairperson) at the University of Kansas Medical Center, we 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. At the graduate level, a 2-year masters curriculum prepares future clinicians for practice as speech-language pathologists. At the doctoral level, we offer a four year Doctorate of Audiology degree that prepares students for entry into the clinical practice of audiology. We also grant a Doctor of Philosophy in Speech-Language Pathology and in Audiology. These degrees are individually tailored to meet the student's interest in producing the next generation of speech-language-hearing scientists to solve the questions of tomorrow. World-class academic and clinical faculty integrate expertise among a diverse range of content areas in state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities to provide you with a comprehensive and rewarding educational experience, and a gateway into your future.
