During the Communication Sciences and Disorders program offered by The University of Vermont, you will be taught how language is learned, produced, perceived, and understood - including the physical, neurophysiological, cognitive, and linguistic bases of speaking, hearing, and language use; the development of language in children; and the acoustics of sound and speech.
Students are prepared for evidence-based practice in the field through specialty courses taught by internationally-known faculty, the incorporation of guided speech-language pathology and audiology observations, and opportunities for involvement in faculty research.
A bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students for a wide variety of careers, some of which require a graduate degree. This program provides the breadth of a liberal arts education plus an introduction to the health sciences, as well as in-depth information about human communication, including opportunities to explore a variety of communication disorders and the work of speech-language pathologists and audiologists. A minor is required as part of the curriculum; a student should consider using this as an opportunity to explore an additional area of interest, particularly if graduate school in audiology or speech language pathology is not the next step for the student.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
