The Department of Speech and Hearing Science offers undergraduates a choice of career paths culminating in a
Bachelor of Science degree and prepares them for careers and graduate education. The program has three concentrations:
Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, and Human Communication Science, where students may also combine their interests
in communication with preparation for careers in other fields such as dentistry, physical or occupational therapy,
physiology, linguistics, or law. The Human Communication Science concentration also includes an
American Sign Language (ASL) track. For an overview of the program and career
opportunities, download the brochure (PDF).
A concentration must be declared prior to the senior year. Students are advised to consult
Undergraduate Advising and their academic advisor on a regular basis to ensure they are
meeting all requirements. Students interested in clinical certification in speech-language pathology are advised to review applicable ASHA certification requirements.
