The Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences Department at Gallaudet University offers master's degree program in speech-language pathology, clinical doctorate degree program in audiology (Au.D.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree program in Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences. The Master's of Science education program in speech-language pathology and Clinical Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) education programs at Gallaudet University are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. The Department serves many functions and responsibilities within the University by:
The Department's M.S. program in speech-language pathology provides a broad background in speech-language-hearing development, differences, and disorders with an emphasis on the communication needs of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. The non-clinical M.S. in HSLS is an individually-designed degree with master's level course work without a clinical focus. The audiology degree program (Au.D.) is designed to produce audiologists fully trained to work with hard of hearing and deaf individuals, offering a broad and intense academic curriculum and an integrated sequential clinical experience. The program is unique in that it trains audiologists to be proficient in American Sign Language with an understanding of the deaf community. The department also offers a Ph.D. program that prepares post-masters SLPs and AUDs for faculty teaching and research positions in universities and other research facilities.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
