  • Course description
    In this comprehensive pre-professional program, students take academic courses and observe and participate in supervised clinical practica. These activities are designed to provide a strong base for entry into a professional certifying degree program at the master's degree level in speech-language pathology or at the doctoral degree level in audiology. This degree program does not lead to certification of any type. Students cannot find employment as an audiologist or as a speech-language pathologist with only the bachelor’s degree in audiology and speech-language sciences; however, positions can be found as audiology technicians and/or speech-language pathology assistants.
    The degree program can be modified to serve as an excellent undergraduate foundation for entry into the master's degree program in Severe Needs: Hearing (Deaf Education). Students interested in pursuing this option should see their advisor.
