The undergraduate major in Speech-Language-Hearing provides comprehensive coursework in the biological, neurological, acoustic, psychological, developmental, and linguistic bases of speech, language, and hearing. Hence students receive a solid foundation in the structure and processes involved in typical speech and language production and perception and in hearing. Students interact with instructors who are theorists, researchers, and clinicians. The undergraduate degree does not, however, by itself provide the training necessary to become a Speech-Language Pathologist or Audiologist. To become a professional in these areas requires a graduate degree with extensive clinical education and experience. Nonetheless, graduates with a major in Speech-Language-Hearing will satisfy Standard III-B (Basic Communication Processes) of the Knowledge and Skills Assessment required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Moreover, graduates will be able to apply their knowledge to a graduate program in speech-language pathology that leads to certification and licensure as a Speech-Language Pathologist or Audiologist or to graduate study in a variety of fields such as education, social work, or one of the various health areas.
