Communication Sciences and Disorders majors who plan to pursue Departmental Honors must be members of the University Honors Program and should enroll in COSD 30003 during their junior year and COSD 40003 during their senior year.
Students who have declared one of the two majors offered in Communication Science and Disorders are assigned a faculty member as their departmental advisor. Students are required to meet with their advisor at least once per semester in order to ensure that you are making the correct class choices, you are aware of all the career options that your major may provide you, and you have someone to help you when problems arise with your degree plan. The best time to meet with your advisor is during group advising which is scheduled during the two-week pre-registration period that takes place every semester. If you are unsure who your faculty advisor is, contact the department and we will be able to direct you to the correct faculty member for your major.

The Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders has identified the basic skills required to practice in speech-language pathology.
