Communication Disorders

Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders

The Communication Disorders Major is designed to provide students foundational knowledge in the areas of speech, hearing, language, and swallowing disorders. The program in Communication Disorders will prepare students for graduate studies in Speech Language Pathology or Audiology.

Speech-Language Pathologists are professionals who work in public schools, private clinics, or medical settings to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Audiologists are professionals who work in clinics and medical settings to provide diagnosis and treatment of hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders for people of all ages. SLPs and Audiologists collaborate with other health care professionals including educators, psychologist, physicians, nurses, occupational therapists and clients' families.

In CBU's Communication Disorders undergraduate program, students will acquire a strong academic foundation in the area of normal processes of communication and its disorders while working closely with CBU faculty who are nationally published scholars and clinicians specializing in both pediatric and adult communication disorders. Students will have various community outreach opportunities assisting individuals with communication disorders. At CBU students will be academically, professionally, and spiritually well prepared to become a future professional in the field.

This program is also approved as an official training program for 1) Speech and Language Pathology Assistants (SLPA) by the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Dispensers Board and 2) School Audiometrist by California Department of Health Care Services. Students who earn a BS in Communication Disorders and complete their required 126 clinical hours as part of their curriculum at CBU will be eligible to register as a SLPA and/or School Audiometrist in the state of California and work as a SLPA or School Audiometrist in the field under the supervision of a SLP or Audiologist.
