Program Overview

The minor in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) fosters learning related to communication sciences and the normal processes of human communication. It provides an introduction to communication disorders. The field of CSD is inherently interdisciplinary. Few academic or clinical realms are unrelated to communication sciences and disorders. Study in this area is relevant to students with almost any major.

Students wishing to pursue graduate studies in any clinical field can develop a good foundation through this minor. Even those without professional interests related to communication disorders can 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 CSD, a minimum of 21 hours of CSD coursework must be completed. Students considering graduate study in the CSD programs (master’s in speech-language pathology or doctor of audiology) are encouraged to complete the minor and any additional prerequisites.
