Speech, Language and Hearing Science

Speech LabSpeech, hearing and language sciences are the study of the nature and processes of human communication and physical and neurological disorders that can impact those processes.  Professionals trained in the SLHS field deal with a broad range of disabilities and conditions related to speech, language delays or difficulties and hearing loss or limitations.  They learn how to provide services to prevent, diagnose, evaluate and treat communication disorders.  At Northern Michigan University, we order a major at the baccalaureate level, as well as a baccalaureate minor in SLHS.
