Welcome to the Department of Speech Pathology & Audiology

The Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology & Audiology and a Master of Science degree in Speech Pathology. We also run an on-campus Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic which provides speech-language and audiological services to community members.

Undergraduate students in Speech Pathology and Audiology are usually planning ahead for careers as speech-language pathologists or audiologists. Both of these professions require graduate degrees. The undergraduate program at WIU provides students with the background to be successful in graduate school. Undergraduates complete coursework in the basic science behind typical and atypical communication, oral and written communication skills, and the foundations of clinical practice. Seniors with a 3.0 GPA or higher in the major also have the opportunity to complete clinical experiences in our Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. GradTrac is available to Speech Pathology and Audiology majors. See more information about GradTrac.
