University Majors

San Francisco State University
Communicative Disorders B.A.

The Bachelor of Arts in Communicative Disorders program is considered a pre-professional degree, and is designed to prepare students for graduate study in speech-language pathology or audiology. A master`s degree is required to become certified as a Speech-Language Pathologist and a doctoral degree (AUD) is required to become an Audiologist. While the B.A. degree in CD does not qualify the student to practice speech-language pathology or audiology, there are related fields open to the B.A. graduate that include employment as a teacher`s assistant, classroom aide, child development worker, and speech-language pathology assistant with additional intern experience beyond the undergraduate degree. In addition, the BA degree in CD is a strong foundation for a number of graduate programs in special education, education, rehabilitation counseling, and related fields.

Program courses constitute the specific requirements for a liberal arts major in communicative disorders leading to the baccalaureate degree at this University. All undergraduates, regardless of their intention to become an audiologist or speech-language pathologist, take the same coursework. Twelve core courses are required for the major.
