Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences Major with Early Childhood Licensure


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

A major in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) provides a sound background for candidates pursuing careers in education, health care, and vocational rehabilitation. Graduates in Speech, Language,and Hearing Sciences who complete the SLHS major will have prerequisite coursework to pursue a master's degree in Speech-Language, Pathology or Audiology, which opens up possible careers in schools, community clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and private practice. The Childhood Communication concentration withinthe SLHS major will provide early childhood and elementary educators with an option to concentrate their study of communication science in the area of language from birth to 18. The Childhood Communication concentration does not provide all required coursework to prepare students for graduate school admission in speech-language pathology or audiology or for the SLPA Certificate.


Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses required for the major in order to progress through the program. Courses with grades lower than "C" will need to be repeated in order for the student to progress to courses requiring that course as a prerequisite.
