Students majoring in Communication Sciences & Disorders will receive the academic and pre-professional training necessary for more specialized study at the graduate level. (A graduate degree is required to work in most settings as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist.) The program's focus on human development and disability provides a solid academic foundation for students who wish to pursue other related careers in human services.
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM MISSION
The mission of our undergraduate program is two-fold. Our program is committed to providing students with foundation knowledge in communication sciences and disorders required for graduate study in speech-language pathology. Our broader mission is to prepare students, who upon graduation: have the knowledge and skills to pursue a variety of post-baccalaureate options; are effective oral and written communicators; are life-long learners who can engage in inquiry, analysis, critical and creative thinking and collaborative team work and are in a best position to face the challenges of the 21st century.
