In light of Campus closure regarding COVID-19, employees in the college of Natural and Health Sciences are working remotely and faculty are teaching classes virtually in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to UNC's COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.

Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences

Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences offers programs in speech-language pathology and audiology, each with a clinical orientation. Both graduate programs are accredited by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) and by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

As part of the training program, the department also houses the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Clinic, which provides a variety of diagnostic and rehabilitative services to individuals of any age with speech, language, and/or hearing difficulties.

The undergraduate program offers a pre-professional bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology and audiology. At the graduate level, both the speech and audiology programs are designed to prepare students to become professional practitioners in their field. Training focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of speech, language, hearing and balance disorders in both children and adults.
