The Division of Communication Disorders, housed in the College of Health Sciences at the University of Wyoming, prepares its students for careers in professions such as speech-language pathology and audiology that are essential to humanity.

Offering pre-professional bachelor’s preparation in speech, language and hearing science, plus a master’s of science in speech-language pathology, the division educates more than 100 undergraduates and 50 graduate students each academic year through campus and distance tracks. Another 300 students enroll annually in American Sign Language courses.

The division also operates the UW Speech and Hearing Clinic, which provides graduate students with an opportunity for clinical education. The clinic is open to the public and serves people of all ages with a variety of communication, cognitive, hearing and swallowing disorders.

Graduates enter the professional workforce as speech-language pathologists, who specialize in the treatment of communication, swallowing and development disorders, and audiologists, who work to assess and find solutions to hearing problems.

UW faculty conducts research in diverse areas, including infant motor-speech control, preschool bilingual services, school-age reading and language intervention and speech of individuals with cleft palate.
