Communication Sciences and Disorders, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

50 Credits

Introduction

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers a post-baccalaureate program for students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. Such students currently hold a degree outside the discipline of speech, language, and hearing science.  The program is a 4-quarter lockstep program beginning fall quarter.  Courses are taken sequentially through the year, including summer quarter.

The program is administered by the Extended Education division of Western Washington University. It is important to note that acceptance into this post-baccalaureate program does not guarantee admission to the graduate program. Completion of the Western Washington University post-baccalaureate program qualifies students for consideration for admission to our master’s program in Speech-Language Pathology or similar graduate programs in other universities.
