MAJOR IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS.  44 credits including CSD-110; CSD-205; CSD-210; CSD-215; CSD-220; CSD-305; CSD-310; CSD-315; CSD-405; CSD-410; two from CSD-415, CSD-420, CSD-425, CSD-430; CSD-480; CSD-490; optional: CSD-105. Required supporting courses (20 credits): LING-100; Any PSYC or SOAN course; Statistics such as PSYC 240 or Math 130; any course carrying BIOL prefix that is human- or animal-based, such as BIOL-130 or BIOL-140; CHEM 131 or 132 or PHYS 121 or 151.

Departments of Education in selected states may require a Human Development Course such as PSYC 216 and therefore this course is recommended for CSD majors.

Course repeat policy: An exception to the institutional course repeat policy may be available for students who intend to apply for graduate study in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) at Augustana. With the support of the CSD department, a student may petition the Committee on Advanced Standing and Degrees to repeat and replace a course if the student has not met the minimum grade required for admission to the MS-SLP program. This option does not apply for students pursuing graduate programs elsewhere.

Grade Point Average Notation: Students must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher to enroll in CSD-425 and CSD-430. All courses listed in the catalog as required courses for any major and/or minor, including those courses outside of the department or with a different subject coding, are considered part of the major and will count in the grade point average. Some departments may have additional grade requirements for the courses offered within their department. Recommended supporting courses that are optional and not required may also count in the major depending on the program. For more information see your department chair or the degree requirements for Bachelor of Arts and information on Majors/Minors.
