DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS

Michael Rastatter, Chairperson, 107 Belk Annex 1

BS IN SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCES

The undergraduate program emphasizes the normal processes of speech, hearing, and language and allows the student to explore other academic areas of interest. Since in most states the master's degree is the minimum level of preparation for persons seeking professional careers in this field, the BS degree does not qualify the student to work professionally but is designed to prepare the student for graduate studies.  Admission to the university does not assure admission to the program.  Students are initially admitted to the General College.  In order to be considered for admission to the program, the student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and must have completed CSDI 2100 with a minimum grade of B.  The student must also be interviewed prior to formal admission into the program.  These requirements are generally completed by the end of spring semester of the sophomore year.  Majors must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and a GPA of 2.5 for all required CSDI courses.  All CSDI courses must be passed with a minimum grade of C.  A major earning a D in any CSDI course must petition the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders for probationary continuation and will be required to repeat the course. 

Minimum degree requirement is 126 s.h. of credit as follows:
