Program Details

The online BS in Communicative Disorders & Deaf Education from Utah State University is a pre-professional degree that prepares students for graduate school in speech-language pathology or clinical or educational audiology. Students may focus on either subject:

It may also include children and adults who stutter, have voice disorders, or suffer from speech, language, and swallowing problems as the consequence of neurological disease or stroke. 
  • Audiologists evaluate and manage individuals who are suspected or have been identified as having differences associated with hearing. Audiologists conduct testing to help identify hearing loss, select and fit hearing aids, program cochlear implants, and provide aural rehabilitation.
