Undergraduate

School of Education, Teaching Students with Speech and Language Disabilities, BA


In order to work effectively with students who have speech disabilities, you must have a solid background in speech- language pathology and audiology. Our Teaching Students with Speech and Language Disabilities program prepares you with a fundamental knowledge-base in disorders such as stuttering, delayed language development, aphasia, voice articulation problems, and habilitation of hearing disorders.

As a student in this program, you will complete your major through our Communications Sciences and Disorders program and choose Teaching Students with Speech and Language Disabilities as your area of concentration.

Concentration in Teaching in Bilingual Settings
In order to have the bilingual extension added to your teaching certificate, you will need to take two additional courses. This extension stands out to hiring principals.

You will also gain hands-on experience by providing speech-language therapy at our on- campus Speech and Hearing Center. And you will gain more practical experience by observing and/or participating in the therapeutic process at area hospitals, schools, and day care centers.
