A major in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students for graduate education in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. Students interested in Audiology could also complete the Communication Sciences and Disorders minor instead of the major and be eligible for graduate programs.
CSD Major Course Requirements/Descriptions
The CSD major is 43 credits and can be completed as part of a Bachelor of Applied Arts (B.A.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Regardless of the degree choice, students must apply for admission to the major, a competitive process that is based on the student's performance in the five pre-admission major courses listed below.
Students coming in without any credit hours or with a small number of credit hours usually complete these courses in three to five semesters, while students coming in with a lot of credit hours typically complete these courses in one to three semesters. Because grades in these courses will determine whether or not students will be accepted into the major, students should consult with an advisor to determine how to schedule these courses.
