California State University, East Bay
Speech Pathology and Audiology B.S.
Speech-language pathology and audiology are the professions which help adults and children overcome disabilities of speech, language, and/or hearing. These professions can satisfy a wide variety of career interests, including working in an allied medical profession, public service, government, education and private industry. Through research, these professions also contribute to our knowledge about human communication.
Many students select this degree program for professional training in speech-language pathology; others select this major because it seeks to develop student patterns of clear and logical thinking, planning, decision making and writing. Drawing from such academic disciplines as biology, psychology, sociology, linguistics, medicine, and the physical sciences, the program offers an interdisciplinary character that encourages and fosters an emphasis on acquiring the broad knowledge of a liberal arts general education, as well as developing expertise in a single discipline. Many of our undergraduate majors have used these attributes to successfully pursue careers other than speech-language pathology, and have gone on to fields of education, finance, business, and government services.
