"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!"

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.

Undergraduate student Isabella Mijares.UW Undergraduate in Division of Communication Disorders Receives National Scholarship

An undergraduate student with the University of Wyoming’s Division of Communication Disorders is the recipient of a 2021 National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) Undergraduate Scholarship.

Isabella Mijares, from Pagosa Springs, Colo., was awarded the scholarship from NSSLHA as a preprofessional student studying communication sciences and disorders. Only 10 undergraduate students are selected for this honor each year.

In addition to receiving the NSSLHA scholarship, Mijares is a current Wyoming Research Scholar. She credits Mark Guiberson, director of the UW Division of Communication Disorders, as being a “perfect” mentor, helping her advance her research interests, which include working in the Dual Language and Preschool Laboratory for Developmental Language Disorders.

Jamie Crait, director of the Wyoming Research Scholars Program, says Mijares has been an active member of the program from the start, engaging in science outreach and helping with events such as the Wyoming State Science Fair.

“Isabella hit the ground running with her research in Dr. Guiberson’s lab, advancing from a novice researcher to a valued lab member by her sophomore year,” Crait says. “We are proud to have students like her in our program, who can serve as role models and ambassadors for undergraduate research at UW and around the state.”
