The Program in Audiology & Communication Sciences (PACS) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis provides exceptional graduate education in audiology, deaf education and speech and hearing sciences.
We also offer an undergraduate minor for students interested in hearing, deafness, language and speech.
When you join PACS, you join a community — a tight-knit, welcoming group that many students liken to a family. Expect collaboration and support from students, faculty and staff alike.
Our close ties with Washington University’s Department of Otolaryngology, the Central Institute for the Deaf, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and other local sites give students hands-on training opportunities and an extensive professional network.
