Supporting people to have good social relationships utilizing professional communication skills to foster specialists with empathy and quick response in speech- language and hearing function
The ability to communicate through speech and language is uniquely human. Speech therapists can provide scientifi c treatment to meet the needs of individuals with various types of speech-language and hearing disorders as well as cognitive and swallowing malfunctions. The 21st century is defined as “the era for the mind and the brain,” and our speech therapy is based on the development of neuroscience. Therefore, services to be provided by speech therapists are rapidly increasing. Our goal is to foster specialists with knowledge and competence. In addition, the university operates our Speech-Language and Hearing Center on campus where students obtain fi eldwork experience through person-to-person instruction by the teaching staff.
