The communication sciences and disorders major includes didactic and experiential activities for students to learn foundational skills necessary for success in professions such as speech-language pathology, audiology and communication sciences, all of which require graduate degrees. The undergraduate program exposes students to information about (a) normal aspects of speech, language, and hearing as they relate to human communication, and (b) introductory concepts pertaining to the nature, assessment, and treatment of communication disorders. Upon successful completion of the major, students receive the Bachelor of Health Science degree. The majority of undergraduate students pursue graduate or professional training in a health field (e.g., speech language pathology, audiology or other graduate degree program); however, some students seek employment immediately after completing the BHS degree program, usually in organizations with either a health or education component.
