Millions of Americans have some type of communication disorder. Gain the knowledge
and experience that will prepare you to improve and enhance the lives of those suffering
from hearing loss, language impairment or speech disorders.
Good communication skills are critical in every aspect of our lives. All of the programs
in this department focus on enhancing communication and improving the quality of life
for individuals of all ages, from the tiniest of newborns to older stroke and trauma
Programs are large enough to offer a breadth of relevant coursework. At the same
time, small class sizes mean students interact regularly with fellow students and
have easy access to faculty. More than 80 percent of the department’s courses are
taught by full-time faculty members, who are committed to developing students with strong critical thinking skills, high
ethical standards, and broad knowledge of the field.
With internationally and nationally recognized health care organizations and agencies
located within minutes of campus, undergraduate and graduate students gain valuable
practical experience that builds on their coursework. Explore applied research opportunities
and community-based learning experiences that are designed to enhance the lives of
individuals with limited communication abilities. At the university’s own Institute
for Well-Being in downtown Towson, you can work directly with patients to gain relevant
training experience at the Speech & Language Center or the Hearing and Balance Center.
