Duquesne's Speech-Language Pathology program is fortunate to have physical surroundings that enhance our learning environment. At the inception of the program, space was allocated in Fisher Hall, at that time, a new addition to Duquesne's campus. The space was planned by department faculty to reflect the educational philosophy and model of the program -- the integration of scholarship, clinic, and teaching.
With several notable expansions and enhancements to the original plan, the program's facilities on the fourth floor of Fisher Hall afford students, faculty and patients a well-maintained, comfortable workplace in which to teach, treat, and learn. The following descriptions are linked to more information.
The Department has a dedicated classroom adjacent to faculty offices, student learning labs, and the University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. The vast majority of Departmental courses are taught in the classroom in 400 Fisher Hall.
Research and instructional learning labs are also conveniently located on the fourth floor of Fisher Hall. Professional phase students have 24/7 access to the labs and Clinic space.
The University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is centrally located in the department. The facility serves approximately 100 clients annually; people for the greater Pittsburgh community, needing help with their ability to communicate. Students in the first year of the Professional phase of the program spend three semesters learning in the Clinic before pursuing externship placements in the community during the second year of the program.
We encourage prospective students to visit the department, meet with faculty, staff and students, see campus and tour our facilities. Contact us to make arrangements.
