Research in HSLS

The Department of Hearing, Language, and Speech Sciences at Gallaudet University conducts extensive research on communication access for deaf and hard of hearing people. The department has a long history of external research supports from federal agencies and private foundations including Department of Education and National Institutes of Health. Each faculty member is conducting one or more research projects.

There are ample opportunities for students to be involved in research projects. AuD students (and SLP students who choose the thesis option) conduct a research project under the guidance of a faculty advisor and fulfill the research capstone requirement for graduation. PhD students typically complete a thorough, in-depth research project and are encouraged to take an opportunity to present their research outcomes in a nationally recognizable conference or publish in a peer-reviewed journal, before competing the dissertation. 

Students have an opportunity to work with faculty members as a research assistant, typically up to 10 hours/week (for SLP/AuD students) or 20 hours/week (for PhD students).
