Course info

Summary

The study of Communication Sciences and Disorders involves the examination of human communication, its development and disorders. The ability to communicate may be our most distinctive characteristic as a species. Human communication is essential to learning, work and social interaction. Communication disorders affect the way people talk and understand. These disorders range from simple sound substitutions to total impairment of the ability to use language. Impaired communication can affect every aspect of a person’s life. Students who study communication sciences acquire a broad general background relevant to careers or graduate study in such fields as speech-language pathology, audiology, education, and health care.

The undergraduate program in Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Maine provides a general education in speech, language, and hearing sciences. In addition it prepares students for graduate study in the professions of speech-language pathology, audiology, and related fields.

Majors must complete coursework in biological and physical sciences, mathematics and statistics, behavioral and/or social sciences, basic normal communication and swallowing processes and nine credits in non-departmental cognate areas including PSY 100.
