The minor in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) fosters learning-related communication science and the normal processes of human communication, and it will provide an introduction to the field of communication disorders. The field of CSD is inherently interdisciplinary. Few academic or clinical realms are unrelated to hearing, speech and language sciences. Study in this area is relevant to students with almost any major.

Students wishing to pursue graduate studies in any clinical field can develop a good foundation through this minor. Even those without professional interests related to communication disorders, per se, can benefit from an improved appreciation of issues related to a host of vital human communication issues that affect their everyday lives.

To earn a minor in CSD, a minimum of 28 hours of CSD coursework must be completed. Students considering pursuit of graduate study in the CSD programs (master’s in speech-language pathology or doctor of audiology) at Ohio University are encouraged to take those courses required for graduate study indicated below.
