The Department of Hearing and Speech Science is offering a new program designed to provide post-baccalaureate students with the necessary prerequisite coursework to apply for graduate work in speech-language pathology or audiology.

HESPIE offers courses at convenient evening times during the University’s fall, spring, and summer semesters, accommodating workforce schedules. We have two cohorts per year; the fall entry cohort meets face-to-face in campus classrooms, while the spring entry cohort meets remotely (but synchronously) for all courses. 

The program includes eight courses—two offered each semester—with class meeting times of one evening per week. All courses are offered at in-state undergraduate rates to all students admitted into the program. For more information about the program and to find out how to apply, visit
