Minor code OR5305

The minor in Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences (HSLS) fosters learning-related communication science and the normal processes of human communication and will provide an introduction to the field of communication disorders. The field of HSLS is inherently interdisciplinary. Few academic or clinical realms are unrelated to hearing, speech and language sciences. Study in this area is relevant to students with almost any major.

Students wishing to pursue graduate studies in any clinical field may develop a good foundation through this minor. Even those without professional interests related to communication disorders per se may benefit from an improved appreciation of issues related to a host of vital human communication issues that affect their everyday lives.

To earn a minor in HSLS, a minimum of 28 hours of HSLS coursework must be completed. Students considering pursuit of graduate study in the HSLS programs (master’s in speech-language pathology or doctor of audiology) at Ohio University are encouraged to take those courses required for graduate study indicated below.
