The Department: Both the audiology and speech-language pathology programs are ranked in the top 50 programs nationwide. The department enrolls 24 students in the four-year doctoral (Au.D.) program in audiology, approximately 60 students in the two-year M.A. program in speech-language pathology and 100 undergraduate majors. Additionally, Western Michigan University also offers a 4 + 3 Accelerated Doctor of Audiology degree program to students interested in audiology through the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Health Services program. This mechanism enables students to take graduate level coursework in their senior year, that may be counted towards both the undergraduate and graduate degree requirements, thus saving approximately six months of graduate study relative to the current 4 + 4 model. The department also supports a minor in American Sign Language. Faculty and students in the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences are engaged in active research, classroom and clinical teaching through the on-campus Van Riper Language, Speech and Hearing Clinics, and service to the university and professions.
The department is engaged in ongoing assessment activities and strategic planning to align with the College of Health and Human Services, University and Academic Affairs strategic plans. The department is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Opportunities exist for interprofessional collaborations within the college, across the university, and with the Western Michigan University School of Medicine
