Speech and Hearing Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at UNM. Whether you are interested in our academic programs, the clinical services at our Speech-Language-Hearing Center, our continuing education opportunities, or our research endeavors, we encourage you to explore this site and to contact us so we can give you all the information you need.

For over 50 years, we have pursued excellence in academics and clinical services. Our mission is to support the missions of the University and the College of Arts and Sciences by:

  • creating and disseminating basic science, assessment, and  intervention knowledge about communication sciences and disorders within our own academic discipline, and in collaboration with related disciplines

  • providing quality educational experiences in both academic and clinical contexts to prepare students to become effective professionals in speech-language pathology and related professions

  • providing excellence in clinical service (a) through the University of New Mexico Speech-Language Clinic and affiliated professionals and agencies in the community; and (b) by providing continuing education and serving as a model for clinical services

  • serving the unique needs of the state of New Mexico by increasing the participation of culturally diverse populations in our disciplines, preparing our students to be leaders in a multicultural and multilingual society, and collaborating with other disciplines to ensure our graduates are prepared to provide comprehensive and effective services

  • providing unique opportunities for our students to excel in a multilingual setting, such as the CLASS for ALL program and the Comunidad Crecer program.
