Welcome to the Division of Communication Disorders!


UW Division of Communication Disorders alumna Samantha Yung.

"The UW Division of Communication Disorders is the perfect place to start your journey towards the careers of speech-language pathology or audiology. The program provided me with all the knowledge and experience I needed to feel prepared for my doctoral program, and they can do the same for you!"

Samantha Wagner Yung, Au.D. 
B.S. in Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences (UW, 2012)

We have a long history at the University of Wyoming, coursework in speech correction, as it was known at that time, was initiated in 1940, and the first dedicated degree bachelor’s degree in speech correction, was awarded to Barbara Kahn in January 1952.  The Division of Communication Disorders offers a bachelor's (B.S.) degree in Speech, Language and Hearing Science, and Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology.  We have very productive research faculty, creating and disseminating basic and clinical science to inform practice across the lifespan. Our clinical program provides services to the community and state of Wyoming, with 2800 - 3,000 patient contacts a year.  We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our academic programs, clinical services at the Speech & Hearing Clinic, faculty research,  as well as our scholarships and the Maggie Scarlet Summer Speaker Series.

UW Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic audiology supervisor Teresa Garcia performs a standard hearing exam on Eleanor Downey. UW Speech, Hearing Clinic Reopens to New Safety Restrictions and Appreciative Patients

As the University of Wyoming plans to welcome back students to campus this fall, a top priority for the university’s restart is the health and safety of students, staff and faculty.

The UW Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic, part of the Division of Communication Disorders, located in the College of Health Sciences, reopened its doors to patients in late June. The clinic has implemented a strategic plan of safety guidelines aimed at preventing clinic staff and patients from possible exposure to the coronavirus responsible for the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Teresa Garcia, supervisor of clinical services in audiology, says steps are taken before seeing each patient to protect against contact infections.

“Before each patient and in between all patients, the waiting room area and testing booth area are cleaned and wiped down with a sanitizing spray,” Garcia says. “Surfaces that are difficult to clean or that may be affected by the repeated use of a sanitizing spray are covered in a barrier film.”
