Additional Information

This minor is composed of a minimum of 15 units that focus on the study of speech, language, and hearing. Of the 15 units, 3 units must be Educ 234; at least 9 units must be at the 300 level or higher; and at least 9 units must be offered by the department (M89). To count toward the minor, courses must be selected from the courses listed above or approved in advance by the minor advisor. A grade of C- or higher is required for a course to count toward the minor.

For students who intend to pursue graduate studies in audiology, speech-language pathology, or deaf education, we recommend meeting with the minor advisor to develop a course of study that will fulfill prerequisite requirements for the intended area of study.

Because the minor in speech and hearing sciences is offered by the Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences (PACS) in the School of Medicine, it may not be used as an Integration and does not otherwise fulfill any Arts & Sciences distribution requirements.
