Introduction

The Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences is a pre-professional degree program which prepares students for graduate study in either Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. Professionals in these fields must earn certification and/or licensure, which usually require a graduate degree in the field of specialization. Courses are, however, open to students in other fields.

Audiologists are professionals with master’s or doctoral degrees specializing in prevention, identification, and assessment of hearing impairment. They also provide habilitation and rehabilitation of persons with hearing loss and fit hearing aids.

Speech-language pathologists are professionals with master’s or doctoral degrees who assess and treat communication disorders such as stuttering, delayed language development, aphasia, voice disorders, and articulation problems.

Audiologists and speech-language pathologists work in schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, research laboratories, government agencies, universities, and private practices.

The program offers a foundation for understanding normal and disordered communication across cultures. It meets the recommendations of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and fulfills entrance requirements for a graduate program in speech-language pathology or audiology.
