Communication using speech, language and hearing is a crucial human behavior underpinning every aspect of daily life. ASU’s College of Health Solutions is committed to the science and practice of communication with the overall goal to improve health outcomes. Our degree programs, research and clinical services address fundamental elements of communication: hearing, speech, language, education and neuroscience.
Our faculty and students study childhood and adult speech sound disorders, aphasia, language impairment, stuttering, voice disorders, hearing loss and dysphagia, as well as facilitating use of technology such as hearing aids or cochlear implants. We examine the causes of disorders associated with speech and hearing, explore methods of assessment and train students in evidence-based treatment. Students are prepared for careers in speech, language and hearing fields by faculty dedicated to advanced research, all supported by a focus on and commitment to better health outcomes.
Located on the Tempe campus and online, our undergraduate and graduate programs address many aspects of human communication and disorders. Students can attain broad-based knowledge of the communication process; speech, language and hearing sciences; communication disorders; audiology; auditory and language neuroscience; and speech-language pathology. Our innovative degree programs are aligned to current research and provide opportunities for hands-on learning in supervised settings such as the community-oriented ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic.
The speech and hearing science faculty at ASU’s College of Health Solutions use state-of-the-art cognitive, behavioral and neuroscience techniques to study the components of human communication—speech, language and hearing—and advance our knowledge of this crucial human function. This faculty and student research provides new ways to diagnose and treat those with communication disorders and diseases and hearing loss.
The College of Health Solutions is home to the ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic, a state of the art clinical training facility that is integral in educating students in translating research into practice. The clinic serves those affected by communication disorders and those in need of elective communication services within the university and surrounding communities.
The Master of Science in Communication Disorders education program in speech-language pathology and the Doctor of Audiology education program in audiology at Arizona State University are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
