The Communication Disorders Minor provides the prerequisites necessary to prepare students for graduate study in speech/language pathology or audiology. The program consists of five courses, considered by the accrediting agency, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as essential to students seeking admission to graduate programs in the field.
