Bachelor of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders
The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology is granted by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and requires 120 credits of coursework, including limited clinical practicum. Introductory coursework in audiology and speech-language pathology can be taken towards degree completion. These courses fulfill prerequisite requirements necessary for application to WSU graduate programs. Elective courses may be selected from the following areas of physical sciences and mathematics, psychology, linguistics, and basic human communication. Each undergraduate degree is considered pre-professional as students must obtain a graduate degree to be employed as a certified speech-language pathologist (M.A.) or audiologist (Au.D.) in any work setting.

The department offers the opportunity for students with bachelor's degrees in fields other than communication disorders to complete the mandatory pre-professional academic and clinical requirements to apply for admission to ASLP graduate program at Wayne or a program at another institution. Admission to the WSU post-bachelor degree program is open to all eligible students. Prior to individualized advising for this program, students are required to attend one of our Post-Bachelor Orientations, which are held every 3-4 weeks. Please see our Post-Bachelor Orientation page for more information. To sign up for an upcoming orientation, please call our front desk at (313) 577-3339. New students from other institutions should apply to the Office of University Admissions. WSU students should obtain authorization from Student Records. For assistance, phone (313) 577-3531.
Admission to the post-bachelor's program does not imply automatic admission to the SLP or AUD graduate programs. All places in the graduate program are filled on a competitive basis, however, it should be noted that the department post degree program equips students with academic prerequisites and clinical experience to apply to other graduate programs in Michigan and some 200 programs nationwide.
