Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders

Communication Sciences and Disorders courses concentrate on issues related to understanding and improving the circumstances for individuals who have communication disorders.  At Purdue Fort Wayne, 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 PFW (refer to General Education Requirements of the undergraduate bulletin) and the College of Arts and Sciences (refer to this link in the undergraduate bulletin).

In addition to the required courses, many courses in other disciplines contribute the student's education in speech science. 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.
