As an undergraduate, we focus on providing you with an excellent foundation in basic human communication processes, development, and disorders. You are also exposed to a broad-based experience in liberal arts and general education coursework to complement your discipline-specific learning. A hands-on capstone experience during the junior or senior year completes your undergraduate training.
