Speech Pathology and Audiology

If you decide to major in speech pathology and audiology at Western Michigan University you will be well on your way to working with children and adults in schools or medical  centers providing evaluation and treatment services for children and adults who have speech, language, hearing, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders.

Beyond the classroom

As a speech language pathology and audiology student at WMU, you will have  clinical observation  available to you in the department’s Charles Van Riper Language, Speech and Hearing Clinic. You may be eligible for an opportunity for clinical practice in this clinic.

After you graduate

Completion of the undergraduate program in speech pathology and audiology prepares you for the graduate-level education needed to work in either field. A master's degree in speech and language pathology or a doctoral degree in audiology is the entry-level requirement for certification as a professional.
