Graduates in Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences who complete the SLHS major will have the prerequisite coursework to pursue a graduate degree in speech-language pathology or audiology, which opens careers in schools, community clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and private practice. Additionally, the SLHS program offers an optional concentration in Childhood Communication designed for educators and two certificates. The Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Certificate prepares students to become Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs) and the Leveling Certificate allows students with a bachelor’s degree in another field to show they have completed some prerequisite coursework to apply to graduate school in speech-language pathology or audiology.
