Administrative history

The Audiology and Speech Language Pathology department had its foundings at BYU in the 1930's with the work of Dr. Alonzo Morley. Dr. Morley was head of the Department of Speech Therapy, Audiology, and Drama under the College of Fine Arts and Communications. In 1968, Dr. Parley Newman began his career-long project to get BYU's audiology program accredited. The Department of Speech Therapy, Audiology, and Drama functioned under the College of Fine Arts and Communications until 1980 when the department moved into the John Taylor building along with other colleges now falling under the College of Education. Dr. Gordon Lowe headed the department during the transition. At this time, there were two separate programs functioning at BYU, a speech therapy program and a special education program. In 1981-1982, the BYU administration decided to combine the two programs to form the Audiology program. This program was a mix of the two previous ones. By 1983, the dual programs at BYU were completely dismantled and the program was revamped to fit more needs. In 1991, the department was once again combined with the Special Education department to form the Educational Pyschology department. This union lasted until 1999 when the departments were reorganized and the audiology program became part of the current Audiology and Speech Language Pathology department headquartered in the John Taylor building. The mission of the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Department is to advance knowledge and learning in science and clinical practice through research, teaching, and clinical service.
