Speech and Hearing Sciences

Graduate Study

Students completing the B.A. or B.S. degree in speech and hearing sciences may wish to continue their studies at the graduate level in a program leading to the master's degree in speech-language pathology or the clinical doctoral degree in audiology. It is recommended that students seeking preparation for graduate study in speech-language pathology include in their curriculum S201, S420, S436, S444, S473, and S478. Students seeking preparation for graduate study in audiology are recommended to select their curriculum to include these courses: S375, S436, S475, S478; and either S420, S444, or S445. In addition, students planning to work in a school system following graduate study may elect to take EDUC-M 463 Public School Methods in preparation for school certification. Selection of these courses will minimize the time required to earn an M.A. degree at Indiana University and in other similarly structured graduate programs. It is also recommended that students take at least one course outside of the department in the following areas: biological sciences and physical sciences.
