Major in Human Communication Sciences

Students who pursue an undergraduate degree in Human Communication Sciences are passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, and enjoy learning about how to help children and adults to overcome difficulties in hearing, speech, language and learning.

Most students who complete the undergraduate program go on to medical or dental school or to graduate programs in audiology, speech pathology, learning disabilities, biomedical engineering, or neuroscience. Others begin work immediately in research laboratories or for businesses that produce and market related products and services. You may choose to pursue a general education in communication sciences and disorders, or to concentrate your coursework in one or more specific areas that match your interests and career goals: audiology and hearing science, speech and language pathology, and learning disabilities. Opportunities are available for students to conduct research alongside renowned faculty investigators, and to observe clinical sessions in the new Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning.
