Health and Human Performance Major:  Communication Sciences and Disorders Concentration

The Communication Sciences and Disorders concentration is for those interested in pursuing a career as a speech-language pathologist or as an audiologist. The concentration is embedded in the Health and Human Performance major, and thus in addition to discipline specific content focused on human communication,  the breadth of interdisciplinary content in the curriculum makes the concentration an appropriate foundation for graduate study or careers in  health care, education, science, and public policy.

To earn a degree in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Communication Sciences and Disorders the student must earn a total of 120 credit hours. The curriculum consists of 41 credit hours of the university general education core and the 1 credit hour freshman seminar course. The concentration is comprised of 41 credit hours of disciplinary content in human communication.  The remaining 37 credit hours are elective hours in which courses are selected to enhance the student’s undergraduate education and often to fulfill prerequisite content areas for competitive application to graduate school.
