Minor in Communicative Sciences and Disorders

The Minor in Communicative Sciences and Disorders assists students in acquiring understanding of both normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, and hearing; and knowledge and skills regarding the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders. Speech, language, and hearing disorders can occur at any time over the lifespan and are among the most common challenges faced by the elderly. Completion of the minor provides preparation required for admission to graduate study in communication disorders.
