Speech Pathology and Audiology Major
(Bachelor of Science)

Required: 122 semester hours

The Speech Pathology and Audiology Major, offered by the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, provides a preprofessional program for those preparing for graduate study in speech-language pathology and audiology. The major is designed to satisfy some requirements for the N.C. license in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology, although no license is awarded until completion of the Master's degree. Instruction is designed to meet American Speech-Language-Hearing Association standards. Transfer students may require an additional semester to complete the undergraduate degree program.

Major Requirements

1. Admission Requirements

a. Students must be formally admitted to the Speech Pathology and Audiology Major. Only students with a written acceptance will be permitted to enroll in required courses at the 300 level or above.

b. Applicants for admission to the Speech Pathology and Audiology major may apply only after completion and/or transfer of 55 semester hours and must apply before enrollment in any required courses at or above the 300 level in the major. Applicants must have an overall grade point average of at least 2.7 to be admitted to the major.

c. The grade point average (see b. above) is a minimum requirement and simple compliance does not automatically imply admission. In all cases, admission is competitive and limited by space available in the program.

d. Students seeking admission to the Speech Pathology and Audiology Major should proceed as follows:

  1. Secure an official transcript(s) of undergraduate coursework completed at colleges and universities other than UNCG;
  2. Secure an application from the Communication Science and Disorders Department Office at 300 Ferguson Building;
  3. Deliver both the transcripts and the completed application to the Department Office in 300 Ferguson Building.
  4. In some cases the Program may require additional information or an interview, so the application process should be initiated immediately after completion of 55 semester hours.

 

2. Criteria for Continuing in the Speech Pathology and Audiology Major

a. Maintenance of a minimum overall grade point average of 2.7

b. Minimum grade point average of 2.7 in CSD 306, 307, 308, and 309, with no grades in these courses below C-

c. No grades below C- in any course in the major

d. Demonstration of high quality oral and written communication

e. Compliance with all University regulations including the Academic Honor Code

 

3. Major Requirements

Minimum 24 semester hours above the 100-level.

a. All majors are required to take:
CSD 306, 307, 308, 309, 334, 336, 337 and 556; EDC 135; PHY 205, 205L; PSY 121

b. Students preparing for graduate study in speech-language pathology are required to take:
CSD 338, 339 and 451

c. Students preparing for graduate study in audiology are required to take: MAT 119, 120

d. All majors are required to have foreign language proficiency through the intermediate level (203-204 level), one additional AULER approved Natural Science course, and one additional AULER approved Social and Behavioral Sciences course.

e. All undergraduate majors must complete 25 supervised observation hours in the University Speech and Hearing Center.
