Welcome to the Department of Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center! We are located within the School of Health Professions at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Our department consists of audiology and speech-language pathology undergraduate and graduate students interacting with faculty in an innovative teaching, clinical, and research environment.
If you are interested in a blend of psychology, education, and medicine, this may be a great career option for you! According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the number of positions available for audiologists and speech-language pathologists is expected to grow by approximately 10% over the next 10 years.
At the department’s Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic, students get to experience first-hand the many facets of our professions as they work with faculty providing diagnostic and rehabilitative services to children and adults. Because graduate degrees are required to practice as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist, the undergraduate program here at TTUHSC is designed primarily to prepare students for graduate school. Undergraduate students learn about the normal processes of speech, hearing, and language, and also learn about a variety of communication disorders. They will also complete all required coursework to become licensed speech-language pathology assistants with a bachelor's degree.
