MINORS IN THE Department of communication sciences and disorders

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers two minors, Communication Sciences (CS) and Communication Disorders (CD). Students interested in learning more about communication disorders, those who may work with populations with communication disorders, or those who wish to pursue a graduate education within the fields of audiology and speech-language pathology may wish to discuss these further with our minor advisor, Ms. Beth Lefevre.

Communication Disorders Minor (U178)

The Communication Disorders minor provides students broad-based knowledge of communication disorders related to speech, language, and hearing across the lifespan. Students who complete this minor will have basic knowledge of those with disorders as well as common assessment and treatment activities which are effective in assisting those persons with communication disorders to complete daily activities.

Communication Sciences Minor (U179)

The Communication Sciences minor focuses on the science of communication including linguistic principles, anatomy and physiology of the speech and hearing mechanisms, as well as the hearing and speech science principles. Students who complete a minor in Communication Sciences will be prepared to apply for graduate study in audiology or speech-language pathology.
