					                          Speech & Language Pathology at the University of Delaware
Students who wish to prepare for graduate or professional work in Speech Pathology and Communication Disorders should major in
Cognitive Science with a concentration in speech pathology. The Cognitive Science Major is a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree
consisting of 26 credit hours of core courses. These courses draw from fields such as linguistics, psychology, biology, computer
science, statistics, and philosophy. The major also requires a specified number of credits in a concentrated area of study. The
Speech Pathology Concentration consists of 27 credits in a variety of courses related to speech and communication disorders – such
as audiology, acoustics, physiology, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, phonetics, as well as normal and abnormal language
development. Careers in speech and communication disorders usually require an advanced degree, and graduate programs involve
an intensive course of study--as well as clinical practicum experiences--to enable the satisfaction of requirements for professional
certification. To ensure that students are adequately prepared for graduate-level training, most graduate programs require certain
foundational prerequisites prior to starting the graduate curriculum. The speech and language pathology concentration is designed
to provide these foundational pre-requisites.
          In addition to the courses required for the speech pathology concentration, the department also recommends the choice of
certain electives. The recommended electives are courses that will further strengthen a students’ preparation for graduate training,
but are less likely to be among the required undergraduate course work for graduate study. However, since graduate schools vary in
terms of the undergraduate course work they expect to see, students are strongly encouraged to contact the graduate programs of
their choice as part of the process of choosing their elective coursework.
          In addition to completing all of the requirements for the Cognitive Science major (including the concentration requirement),
all majors must complete the University and the College of Arts & Sciences General Education Requirements. These requirements
can be found in a separate document tilted “University and A&S General Education Requirements” -- located in the Undergraduate
section of the Linguistics & Cognitive Science web site.

IMPORTANT: Because admission into speech pathology graduate programs is highly competitive, we strongly recommend that
students maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher.

USEFUL RESOURCE: There is a UD Chapter of the NSSLHA (National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association) located on
campus. This is an organization for students interested in Speech and Language Pathology. The group functions as a source of
information about admission to graduate programs, upcoming speakers and events, volunteer opportunities and more. If you wish
to be on the mailing list to receive information about the meetings and events, please contact NSSLHA at nsslhaatud@gmail.com or
see their web site.... https://sites.google.com/a/udel.edu/nsshla/home.

Core Courses Required of All Cognitive Science Majors (26 hours/credits)
    Students must earn a C- or higher in all courses within the major, including those that make up the concentration.
    Students may not take courses pass/fail and have them count towards the major, unless the course is graded solely on a
     pass/fail basis.
    600-level courses will not count towards the B.S. degree in Cognitive Science.
    Credits may be counted only once toward a degree.
    With the exception of LING 101, students minoring in linguistics and majoring in cognitive science may not use the same courses
     to count towards both the major and the minor.
    To assist students with curricular planning, a “Progress and Planning Form for the Cognitive Science Major” can be
     downloaded from the departmental web site. This form should be completed and submitted to your advisor before any
     advising session. An electronic copy should also be emailed to Dr. Andreasen, Director of Undergraduate Study
     (robina@udel.edu).

Speech and Language Pathology Concentration Requirement
IMPORTANT CHANGES, Please Read Carefully:
 As of Fall 2012, the number of credits required for speech pathology has been reduced from 30 to 27. This is because speech pathology
   students may now choose between LING 403 and LING 480, rather than taking both. That beings said, both courses are recommended.
 As of Fall 2012, speech pathology students may no longer substitute CGSC 433 for CISC 103. They may now substitute LING 265: The Science
   of Language, Rules and Representations for CISC 103.
 Speech pathology students who entered prior to Fall 2012 have the option of being grandfathered into the old system or they can choose to
   complete the requirements under the new system.
     Old System Requirements: 10 courses (30 credits) in the speech pathology concentration.
     o     CGSC 376, CGSC 387, CGSC 379, CGSC 380, LING 253, CGSC 433, CGSC 496, LING 403, LING 480, and either LING 462 or PSYC 344 or LING 444.
     BUT, students can waive the CISC requirement with CGSC 433: Acoustic Phonetics.
     New System Requirements: 9 courses (27 credits) in the speech pathology concentration.
