Minor in Speech-Language-Hearing

Why study speech, language, and hearing?

Communication is central to human behavior. A minor in SPLH can be combined with a variety of majors to better prepare students to work in careers related to normal speech-language-hearing processing and development as well as careers that serve individuals with communication disorders. Typical related careers include neuroscience, medicine, health related professions, education, and assistive technology. Careful course selection can allow you to focus on a theme within SPLH that is well-suited to your career aspirations. Themes include: communication neuroscience, speech-language development and disorders, and hearing science and disorders. Alternatively, a student who wants to get to know the field better can sample a variety of courses to take a more generalist approach to the minor.
