Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) includes the related but distinct professions of speech-language pathology and audiology. Both offer highly rewarding careers with opportunities to work with a wide variety of clients in an array of work settings. The US Government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics projects excellent employment opportunities for both professions.
