Why Consider a Communication Sciences and Disorders Minor?

Students who are interested in learning more about typical speech, language, and hearing development, processes and disorders but who do not want to complete a major in Communication Sciences and Disorders can minor in CSD. The CSD minor supplements many other majors and programs of study, such as psychology, linguistics, and early childhood and special education.
