The top-ranked University of Washington Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences (SPHSC) is committed to the science of communication! Located in the Pacific Northwest, we are part of the Natural Sciences division of the College of Arts and Sciences. Our research and our courses address the fundamental aspects of communication—hearing, speech, and language—as well as the causes and treatment of disorders such as childhood speech sound disorders, aphasia, stuttering, voice disorders, and hearing loss. We operate the UW Speech and Hearing Clinic, a clinical training and research facility that is integral to our department and serves those affected by communication disorders within our community.
