The mission of the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences is to provide the highest level of education, research, and service in communication sciences and disorders. Our award-winning faculty achieve this through:
The master's (M.A.) and doctoral (Au.D) education programs in audiology and speech-language pathology at the University of Maryland, College Park are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. The CAA is seeking public comment as part of its review of our clinical doctoral programs in audiology and our clinical master’s program in speech-language pathology.
MCICE combines the research and clinical education strengths at the University of Maryland, College Park with the surgical and clinical expertise from the University of Maryland Medical Center and the University of Maryland-Baltimore School of Medicine to create a cohesive entity composed of educational, clinical, and research components. It allows us to offer enhanced clinical services, provide unique educational opportunities for our students, and conduct innovative translational research.
