Speech and Hearing

The minor in speech and hearing is offered by the Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences (PACS) in the School of Medicine and is designed for students interested in exploring topics related to typical and disordered human communication. The required course work provides an overview of the fields of hearing, deafness, language, and speech with opportunities to explore related topics in more depth. This minor is especially valuable for students in fields such as psychological and brain sciences, education, philosophy-neuroscience-psychology (PNP), and linguistics, but it has broad applicability for many fields of study. Courses completed as part of this minor can also be used to fulfill the total unit requirements for graduation and as prerequisites for graduate studies in audiology, deaf education, and speech-language pathology. However, the minor may not be used as an Integration in Arts & Sciences Integrated Inquiry (IQ) curriculum, and it does not otherwise fulfill any Arts & Sciences distribution requirements.
