Program Overview

The minor in Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences (HSLS) fosters learning related to communication sciences and the normal processes of human communication. It provides an introduction to 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 can develop a good foundation through this minor. Even those without professional interests related to hearing, speech and language sciences 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 HSLS, a minimum of 21 hours of HSLS coursework must be completed. Students considering graduate study in the HSLS programs (master’s in speech-language pathology or doctor of audiology) are encouraged to complete the minor and any additional prerequisites.
