Recommended Minors for Students Majoring in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

Students may select any minor in which they are interested. However, we recommend one or both of the two following minors:

Professional Communications Minor (four courses – 12 credits)

This minor is offered through the English Department. The ability to write well for professional audiences is an essential skill in many clinical and non-clinical health-related fields. Adding the Professional Communications Minor to your resume may possibly enhance your qualifications for some potential employers and graduate schools. Two of the courses in this minor are already required for majors in speech-language pathology and audiology (ENW 307 and another writing intensive course). Therefore, only two additional courses are needed for the minor.

Requirements: four courses (12 credits)

Take one of the following three courses:

  • ENW 201 Writing Essentials (3 credits)
  • ENW 217 Editing Essentials (3 credits)
  • ENW 315 Editing for Style and Flow (3 credits)

Plus, take all three of the following courses:

  • *ENW 307 Health and Science Writing (3 credits)
  • ENW 318 Writing for New Media (3 credits)
  • ENW 320 Professional Presentations (3 credits)

*ENW 307 is already required for the major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.

Early Childhood and Childhood Education Minor (four courses – 12 credits)

This minor is offered through the Education Department. This minor may be particularly helpful for students who intend to work with children, because it fulfils a portion of the requirements for the Certificate for Teaching Students with Speech-Language Disabilities (TSSLD).

Requirements: four courses (12 credits)
