Communication Sciences and Disorders courses concentrate on issues related to understanding and improving the circumstances for individuals who have communication disorders. At IPFW, the degree which our students will likely be seeking is a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Our graduates will be well prepared for pursuing careers as speech-language pathologists (SLP) or audiologists (AuD) as well as for pursuing many other career choices using the transferable skills developed in the undergraduate major.
To earn the B.S. with a major in communication sciences and disorders students must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (refer to Part 7 of the undergraduate bulletin) and the College of Arts and Sciences (refer to Part 3 of the undergraduate bulletin).
In addition to the required courses, recommended courses include: PSY 120, PSY 235, PSY 350, EDUC K201, K206. SOC S161 and S163, COM 303, BIOL 204, PHIL 312. The student may wish to consider elective courses that fulfill requirements for a minor that supports preparation of CSD majors. Many of our students pursue minors in areas such as psychology, linguistics and/or a certificate in gerontology. Total required credits equal 120.
