Academic Programs

Two departments, one on the Lawrence campus and the other at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., together form the Intercampus Program in Communicative Disorders — one of the nation’s premier research and training programs in this field.

The program is directed by a committee of faculty members of professorial rank from each of the cooperating departments. The program offers the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in speech-language pathology, and the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) and Ph.D. in audiology. A combined Au.D./Ph.D. track also is available. This track facilitates the completion of both degrees in a 6-year post-baccalaureate period.

The Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders, on KU's campus in Lawrence, Kan., is part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The Department of Hearing and Speech is on the KU Medical Center campus in Kansas City, Kan. It is part of the KU School of Health Professions.

The Lawrence department collaborates with the Departments of Applied Behavioral Science, Linguistics, and Psychology to offer a Ph.D. in Child Language.
