Speech and Hearing Sciences


Investigate communication sciences and disorders across the lifespan by enrolling in our undergraduate Speech and Hearing Sciences program. You will learn fundamental knowledge and skills that will prepare you for a professional career, such as speech-language pathology, audiology or related occupations.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

As a student, you will gain knowledge from expert faculty who care about your success both in and out of the classroom. Small class sizes allow you to interact with faculty and your peers on a personal level.

Our department houses the Governor George Leader Speech and Hearing Center. This clinical site offers assessment and treatment services to adults and children with communication disorders in our community. As an undergraduate student, you will have the opportunity to observe diverse clinical services to see real-world application of classroom content.

In addition, you may volunteer at the preschool classroom Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf Children's Center at Edinboro University.

Beyond the classroom, we promote student engagement in various professional activities including state and national conferences, creative and research projects, interprofessional collaborations and multicultural experiences.

How Edinboro Supports You.

We foster a positive learning environment in which you feel included and valued. All faculty are dedicated to supporting your academic needs through individual advising and office hours. In addition, each undergraduate course has dedicated tutoring opportunities with a graduate student.

Our department has an active Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association. As a student-member, you have an opportunity for service to the community and profession, social engagement and professional enrichment.

With these supports, you will graduate with the critical thinking skills you need to succeed in graduate school or in your professional career.

Your Future

With your undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences, you will gain fundamental knowledge that will prepare you to make a difference in the lives of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders.

Most students pursue graduate studies in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. For more information about those careers, visit: hearingandspeechcareers.org

Many of our students continue their studies in our Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology program.
