Specialized Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and Spanish Double Major
The Communication Sciences and Disorders/Spanish double major aims to provide its students with the pre-clinical, linguistic and cultural foundations, which in addition to a master’s degree in speech-language pathology, are necessary to treat and work with patients that are bilingual English/Spanish, as well as those that are Spanish speakers with limited English proficiency. Those wishing to become CSD/Spanish double majors must have their Spanish assessed by a Language faculty member in order to begin their studies at the appropriate level. After placement, students will follow the carefully designed course sequence prepared by the CSD and Languages departments.
