The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers two majors: one in Speech, Language & Hearing Science and one in Linguistics.

1. The total number of credit hours at graduation may be greater for some students based on initial placement exams, transfer evaluations, individual curricular choices, and academic progress.
2. Certain courses fulfill multiple requirements. In consultation with your advisor, you will be able to plan your curriculum more effectively.
3. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites for any given course or course sequence. See the Prerequisite and Co-requisite Policy in the Academic Policies section of this Bulletin.

Bachelor of Arts degrees in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSCD) may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty upon the satisfactory completion of 122 semester hours of credit. A grade of C is the lowest acceptable final grade for courses in the major. A grade of C- (C Minus) is the lowest acceptable grade in GenEd courses. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders requires that students show a basic level of proficiency in a language other than English. This requirement may be met by taking college-level courses up to or beyond the equivalent of the 1002-level or by showing similar knowledge through a placement examination. Students may take American Sign Language I (CSCD 5534) and American Sign Language II (CSCD 5634) to satisfy this requirement. Students in the department must elect one of two majors: Speech, Language & Hearing Science; or Linguistics. Students who complete either of these majors may graduate with distinction in the department if they meet the requirements outlined below. In addition to the majors in Speech, Language & Hearing Science and Linguistics, the department also offers a minor. Enrollment of minors in departmental courses is subject to availability.

University Requirements

All students starting in the 2011-2012 academic year and beyond are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.

All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses as part of the major. The specific writing-intensive courses required for this major are listed below and are identified by "WI" in the Attribute column.

Summary of Requirements for Graduation with Distinction in the Major

1. GPA of 3.5 or better
2. No grade below B in the major
3. Completion of an honors paper at the end of a 3-credit independent study (CSCD 4979) during which the student will engage in an empirical study or library research in the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders under the supervision of an honors advisor.
4. Completion of 20 hours of volunteer work, internship, or fieldwork in consultation with the honors advisor.
