Andrews University offers a comprehensive pre-professional undergraduate program, which prepares students for graduate study in speech-language pathology or audiology. The BS degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology can be completed in four years of undergraduate study. The first two years are spent earning general education credits and completing prerequisite courses in the major area. The major consists of 45 credits in core and elective courses, and may be completed in the third and fourth years of study. 124 credits are needed for graduation. Remaining credits may be earned in a minor area of study or elective courses.
All majors participate in hands-on practice in speech-language pathology and audiology. The program provides excellent background and preparatory work for entering a graduate program in either speech-language pathology or audiology. Graduates of the program consistently report they were very well prepared for graduate work.
