Undergraduate Study

The Divison of Communication Disorders prepares undergraduates for professional degree programs in Communication Disorders and other disciplines and careers.  The Division accomplishes this mission by:
  • Offering a B.S. in Speech, Language, and Hearing Science that provides students with a broad-based foundation in the sciences and humanities, fundamental knowledge of human communication, communication development, and the nature of communication disorders across the lifespan
  • Providing opportunities for didactic learning with clinical application, problem solving, and critical thinking
  • Providing opportunities to contribute to scholarly inquiry and research in communication disorders
  • Providing education about ethical standards and cultural sensitivity in the provision of services
  • Participating in the University of Wyoming community through interdisciplinary and interprofessional  educational programs

The bachelor’s of science in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences,  typically takes four years. In your bachelor's degree, you will study the normal processes associated with understanding and producing speech and language, including anatomy, physiology, and neurology underpinnings. You will also study the normal development of speech and language in children. You will be introduced to disorders and clinical methods, and you will learn American Sign Language.

It is important to note that the BS Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences courses can not be substituted for community college level speech-language pathology assistant courses. Those courses are intended for technical programs, and do not meet the bachelor’s level requirements of our program.
