Introduction

An undergraduate curriculum may be selected to provide a strong preparation for continued study at the graduate level in speech and hearing sciences. Students not intending to pursue graduate study for careers in speech-language pathology or audiology may elect our general B.A. degree or one of our interdisciplinary majors, in preparation for graduate studies in other fields or for a range of other career choices. The department of Speech and Hearings Sciences (SPHS) offers both B.A. and B.S. degree programs; students should consult the undergraduate advisor and evaluate each degree carefully. The department is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Graduate Study

Students completing the B.A. or B.S. degree in speech and hearing sciences may wish to continue their studies at the graduate level in a program leading to the master’s degree in speech-language pathology or clinical doctoral degree in audiology. It is recommended that students seeking preparation for graduate study in speech-language pathology include in their curriculum S201, S420, S436, S444, S461, S473, and S478. Students seeking preparation for graduate study in audiology are recommended to select their curriculum to include these courses: S371, S378, S436, S478; and either S420 or S444. In addition, students planning to work in the school system following graduate study may elect to take EDUC M463 Public School Methods in preparation for school certification. Selection of these courses will minimize the time required to earn an M.A. degree at Indiana University and in other similarly structured graduate programs. It is also recommended that students take at least one course outside of the department in the following areas: biological sciences and physical sciences.
