Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate program in Speech Language Pathology provides students with fundamental knowledge related to typical and atypical speech-language-hearing processes. Students have the option of either majoring or minoring in Speech Language Pathology. Both options prepare students for graduate school and on becoming a speech-language pathologist. This area of study may be attractive to the student who has a strong academic background and who is comfortable in learning how to apply information from the biological, physical, and social sciences to the assessment and management of individuals with language, speech and hearing disorders.

The mission of the undergraduate program is to prepare students for graduate study in speech language pathology, instill an understanding of typical and atypical communication processes across the lifespan, and promote problem-solving skills. A broad liberal arts and science background provides the foundation for these objectives.
