Department of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology

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 survivors.

First-Rate Faculty

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.

Real-World Experience

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
