Communication Sciences and Disorders Certificate
Certificate Requirements: 24 Credit Hours
Policies, Requirements and Standards
The post-baccalaureate program is designed for individuals who have earned a Bachelor's degree in disciplines other than Communication Sciences and Disorders and now wish to complete the prerequisite courses (i.e., "leveling courses") that are often required for admission into a graduate program in either audiology or speech-language pathology.
The certificate is available to students who hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Baccalaureate degree must be completed within 5 years of application. Interested students should submit an application to the program. Course rotation begins each fall.
Students completing the certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders are required to obtain twenty-five clinical observation hours verified with a signature by a certified audiologist or speech-language pathologist as required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Students are also required to obtain 10 hours of volunteer activities that are unpaid and serve the University or the Community for the certificate to be awarded.
While completion of the Post-baccalaureate program does not guarantee admission into the Communication Sciences and Disorders Graduate Program at Georgia Southern University, it does qualify students to submit an application for admission into the graduate program at Georgia Southern University and for many other graduate programs in the United States.
