At the undergraduate level, students majoring in Speech and Hearing are required to take the following 40 credit hours:
It is not possible to complete the undergraduate Speech and Hearing major solely in the evening. The program attempts to offer a variety of required courses in the evening but cannot staff a complete evening major. Evening students should make an appointment with the Program Director to discuss the program and its offerings.
The Speech and Hearing minor, which is especially valuable for students majoring in education, special education, or the health care professions, provides the student with a foundation in the study of the developmental and normative aspects of speech, language, and hearing. Required courses amounting to 18 credits include: SPH 228, SPH 229, SPH 231, and SPH 232. Two additional courses are to be selected from the following: SPH 351, SPH 431, SPH 438, SPH 481, SPH 482, and SPH 485. Students should discuss with their adviser whether it is appropriate to enroll in SPH 229 Speech and Language Development or SPH 349 Speech and Language Development for Majors. SPH 349 is advantageous for students who expect to enroll in a graduate program in speech-language pathology and pursue professional practice.
