Undergraduate Minor

Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

Coordinator: Fran Prezant

The minor in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology was designed to provide an overview and critical foundational knowledge about the normal processes and disorders of human communication through the lifespan. Included in the overview is a consideration of the emerging technologies and research that are optimizing outcomes and enhancing clinical services. The critical role of interprofessional collaborations with related professionals and families will also be provided. 

The minor provides important information for those interested in pursuing graduate work in communication sciences and disorders which is the pathway to national certification by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and state licensure for practitioners in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. It also serves to enhance the knowledge base of students in numerous human service, education, medical, scientific and related fields and serves as an added value in professional preparation in many other fields.

The multidisciplinary nature of the field also provides a stellar opportunity to introduce pre-professionals in training to the importance and value of interprofessional collaboration and information sharing whether in research or authentic practic environments.

NOTE: The completion of the minor does not guarantee entrance into our gradaute programs or any other graduate program but will provide the background needed to enter into graduate programs.
