Matt Rouse's teaching interests are in the areas of neuroscience and neurogenic communication disorders. He teaches in the undergraduate B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders program as well as the graduate M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology programs. His courses include Introduction to Human Disabilities and Neuroanatomical Foundations of Communication Disorders in the fall semester and Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing and Neurogenic Language Disorders in the spring semester. Rouse uses case studies, patient simulation, and the most current research literature. He is the author of the textbook, Neuroanatomy for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists, published by Jones & Bartlett Learning. He enjoys integrating the Christian faith with speech-language pathology through topics like "disability and the purpose of suffering," "the Christian theology of personhood," and "a Christian view of the body."
