80+ Years of Excellence

Welcome to the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences on the beautiful campus of The University of Arizona. Our top-ranked Department offers undergraduate and graduate education regarding the science of human communication and disorders, training for clinical careers in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, and preparation for research careers in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences.

It has been more than 80 years since the first University of Arizona Speech Clinic was established. We became a Department in 1971, and the University of Arizona quickly emerged as a national leader in the fields of Speech Pathology, Audiology, and the sciences that support these clinical professions.

Current graduate school rankings by US News and World Report indicate:

Speech-Language Pathology Program* = 5th in the U.S.
Audiology Program* = 12th in the U.S.

Our faculty are leaders in the profession who are active researchers and dynamic classroom teachers. Undergraduate and graduate students learn foundational knowledge, cutting-edge research findings, and evidence-based practice in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.

News for Graduate Students: We offer a Bilingual Certificate in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology.
