Undergraduate majors with exceptional academic records have the opportunity to participate in the Speech & Hearing Sciences Department (SPHSC) Honors Program. The SPHSC Honors Program is a year-long experience for students who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly potential and who wish to further their studies in this field through independent research activities, under the mentorship of a faculty advisor.

During this experience, students complete at least six (6) Undergraduate Honors Research credits (SPHSC 498), write an Honors thesis, and present their research findings in the Spring at the Department's Honor’s Colloquium. Students also have the option of presenting their research findings at the UW&'s Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Those who successfully complete the SPHSC Honors Program receive a Bachelor of Science degree "With Honors in Speech and Hearing Sciences".
