The Undergraduate Program in the department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is newly formed. This fall, 2013, the CSD department will be offering the prerequisite courses that are typically needed by students for the foundation of graduate studies in speech-language pathology. These courses are offered in a hybrid format.
Hybrid is online course instruction coupled with in class time. Each class and its instructor set the rules for the number of class times that occur on campus.

The primary mission of the undergraduate curriculum in CSD is to provide the core curriculum that prepares students for advanced study in speech-language pathology and/or to provide students with a broad liberal arts education. We anticipate offering the full undergraduate course offerings toward a degree in CSD within the College of Health Sciences by fall, 2014. It is our goal that the undergraduate curriculum emphasizes the principles and applications of knowledge in both healthy and disordered communication as a natural and social science. Enrollment in the prerequisite courses does NOT constitute or ensure acceptance into the Masters Program in Speech-Language Pathology.
- Students who hold a bachelor’s degree in a field that is not in CSD, Speech-Language Pathology, or the equivalent, should work to complete as many or all of the prerequisite courses before they begin graduate work in Speech-Language Pathology at JU.
- Many speech-language pathologists begin their educations with undergraduate degrees in majors other than CSD. However, for non-CSD majors, the prerequisites are typically required, which would add to the time involved in attaining the degree. Each graduate program determines the courses that are required for admission to their program. Some may admit students to their program and provide the prerequisite classes, while others may admit students on a conditional basis, pending successful completion of the prerequisite coursework. Some academic programs offer online prerequisite courses and students can use EdFind to find institutions that offer this option.
