1. In addition to major requirements, a biological sciences course is required. Students may meet this requirement by completing a general biology course at the community college. 2. Because of the sequencing of CSD major courses, students are advised to transfer early (i.e. after one year at the community college). This allows students to begin introductory courses in their sophomore year and gives them the time necessary to build a stronger foundation in the discipline. Because a graduate degree is required to be able to practice in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology, a solid preparation at the undergraduate level is important. 3. Students interested in the B.A. are strongly encouraged to begin their foreign language at the community college.
