Welcome Letter from the Chair
I'm pleased to welcome you to Gallaudet University and the Department of Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences on behalf of the faculty, staff, and continuing graduate students of the Department. As you may know, Gallaudet's Department of Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences houses a Master's degree program in speech-language pathology and an Au.D. program in audiology that are ranked amongst the best in the country. Additionally the department has a Ph.D. program in Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences, along with a number of undergraduate and graduate service courses.
Among the colleagues you will be meeting during your academic career at Gallaudet are many who will become your lifelong friends. You have chosen a challenging and rewarding career, and I know that the members of the Department join me in hoping that you find this to be a place in which you realize your academic goals.
This guide is intended to help you become familiar with the Department and some of our policies as well as those of the University and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
From all of us, best wishes for an exciting and successful academic career at Gallaudet University.
