The major of communicative disorders prepares speech-language pathologists for graduate work in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. Speech-language pathologists and audiologists are specialists in human communication, its normal development, and disorders. They are professionally prepared to identify communication disorders in educational, medical and related settings and to offer assistance to persons with speech, language and/or hearing disorders. Specifically, speech disorders may be characterized by difficulty in producing speech sounds (articulation), maintaining speech rhythm or fluency, and controlling voice production. Language disorders may be characterized by an inability to appropriately use speech sounds, words and their meanings, and/or grammatical patterns.
