Communication Sciences and Disorders Careers: Undergraduate Program

Communication Sciences and Disorders Careers: Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology

In keeping with the standards of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the undergraduate program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is considered a pre-professional degree program for both speech-language pathology (SLP) and audiology. In order to meet Kentucky licensure and American Speech-Language-Hearing Association certification requirements, it is necessary to complete the Master’s degree for SLP certification or the clinical doctorate (AuD) to receive certification in audiology. The Master’s degree is considered the entry-level point for professional speech-language pathologists, while the AuD is needed to become a practicing audiologist. Undergraduate students intent on majoring in CSD while at UK should plan on 6 years to complete both the Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Science/Arts programs, and 7-8 years to complete the Bachelor of Health Sciences and the AuD in audiology.
