Undergraduate Sequence

Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology

Students pursing a bachelor's degree in speech pathology and audiology will need to complete a departmental sequence of speech pathology and audiology undergraduate courses. These courses must be taken in a specified sequence. Some courses are required courses and others are optional. Some courses are only offered once each year and other courses are offered more often. During the freshman year, undergraduate students primarily enroll in courses to fulfill core curriculum requirements. Undergraduate students must complete one class in sign language (i.e., AM 145); however, three more classes in this sequence are offered (i.e., AM 146, AM 147, and AM 148). Undergraduate students will begin taking departmental courses in their freshman year. For a student to complete this sequence of course work in four years, the course sequence is as follows.

See Undergraduate Courses for a complete listing of these courses.

Course requirements may vary depending on catalog year, it is the responsibility of the student to seek advising.
