The SLHS department has accredited and highly ranked clinical programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology and awards Bachelors, Masters, Au.D, and Ph.D. degrees along with a minor in American Sign Language. The department is housed in the new Regional Academic Health Center (https://healthsciences.indiana.edu/building/index.html) featuring state-of-the-art research laboratories, classrooms, and clinical facilities. Our in-house IU Hearing Clinic serves clients across the lifespan and provides assessment and treatment for a variety of hearing etiologies. Our dynamic program consists of over 40 academic and clinical faculty who provide innovative research, teaching, and clinical training within a thriving interdisciplinary community. Collaborative opportunities exist within the school and with other units on the Bloomington campus including Psychological and Brain Sciences, Program in Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Second Language Studies, and the School of Medicine (Otolaryngology). The proximity to the new Bloomington hospital and other campus allied health units (nursing, social work, and medical sciences) creates further opportunities for collaborations among faculty, interprofessional education for students, and patient-oriented research.
