Have you ever wondered what it would be like not to be able to communicate your thoughts, feelings, or ideas? Communication is something many of us take for granted, but for the millions of individuals who have difficulty hearing, or those who have trouble speaking because they stutter or they have had a stroke, communication is not so simple.

The University of Memphis School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is nationally recognized for its academic, research, and clinical education programs for educating future audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language, or hearing scientists interested in helping individuals with such communication disorders. The School strives to imbue students with the fundamentals of communication processes and disorders that provokes critical thinking and problem solving that leads to a love of learning.
