The Department of Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences plays an important role in helping students meet the five major competencies of Gallaudet's new General Studies Curriculum:
- Language and Communication
- Critical Thinking
- Identity and Culture
- Knowledge and Inquiry
- Ethics and Social Responsibility
The Department has established student learning outcomes (SLOs) for the MS, SLP, Ph.D. and Au.D. degree programs. The SLOs are available in Adobe Acrobat PDF format (Download Acrobat Reader).
