Leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in speech pathology and audiology, this pre-professional program is designed to prepare the student for graduate study and the completion of professional requirements at that level. Full professional status, including certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and appropriate state licensure, requires completion of the master's degree.
In addition to the undergraduate program, the department offers a graduate degree in speech pathology and makes provisions for teacher certification following the completion of the Master of Science degree. The graduate program is accredited in speech language pathology by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
