Communication Disorders Minor (SPCD)

Adviser: Lynn Smith, PhD

The Communication Disorders Minor provides the prerequisites necessary to prepare students for graduate study in speech/language pathology or audiology.  The program consists of five courses considered by the accrediting agency, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as essential to students seeking admission to graduate programs in the field.  Only one course taken as a part of a student’s major may also be counted toward the student’s minor.

As of Fall 17, two courses in the minor have been renumbered.  Students earn credit for the courses whether they were completed under the old number or the new number.
