Light Flickering/Switch Buzzing?

Recently, the light above my hallway stairs began to flicker briefly when turned on. Yesterday, the light switch at the bottom of my hallway stairs that controls this light began buzzing briefly when flipped on.

Can anyone tell me what is causing this problem and how to fix it?

Loose connection at the switch or a bad switch.

With the power off, check the connections to the switch. If any are loose tighten them. If any are backstabbed move them to the screw terminals. If all this fails and the problem persists then replace the switch. Or save yourself the troubleshooting time and just replace the switch.
