Our goal is to improve speech, language, and hearing.
Our award-winning faculty achieve this through:

- Clinical Services
- Community outreach
- Training the next generation of clinicians and researchers
And through active collaborations across the campus.
This summer, undergraduate students became involved in on-campus research in the department. With faculty mentors including Dr. Nan-Berstein Ratner, Dr. Rochelle Newman, and Dr. Jared Novick, these students gained hands-on experience in labs working on studies that could have real-life, clinical implications. The students received the following summer research scholarships: Language Sciences Summer Scholarships from the University of Maryland's Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL), the Summer Research Initiative program scholarships in the College of Behavioral & Social Sciences, and the Maryland Summer Scholars program scholarships from the Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research.
