Minor in Communication Sciences and Disorders
18 hours required

To be eligible to declare a minor in Communication Sciences and Disorders, students must complete the same pre-requisite requirements as for the major:

  • Complete CDIS 1230 and 2250 with a 2.5 in those courses and a 2.5 overall
  • Submit an application with the department

Note that this minor is not intended to duplicate the major; completion of the minor would not guarantee a student sufficient qualifications to apply to graduate school in speech-language pathology. However many of the courses would be helpful to an application, and could be supplemented with post-baccalaureate coursework if students choose to pursue that path. Note that many programs in audiology do not require an undergraduate degree; this minor could be of benefit to students in other majors who seek admission to programs in audiology.
