CHANGES TO BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS IN THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
1. Reduce the number of hours required for students specializing in audiology from thirty-eight to thirty-five hours. Students will only be required to take CSD 367K, Introduction to Speech and Language Disorders Assessment and Treatment in Children, or CSD 371, Introduction to Speech and Language Disorders Assessment and Treatment in Adults.
2. CSD 175K, Symposium on Deafness, will be replaced by a new upper division one-hour topics course, CSD 175N, Deaf Education Seminar, which will be offered on a letter grade basis.
3. Change the number of hours required for students specializing in education of the deaf/hearing-impaired from thirty-one to thirty-two hours. Instead of selecting any nine hours of upper-division CSD courses, students will be required to take CSD 367K, Introduction to Speech and Language Disorders Assessment and Treatment in Children, and 373, Principles of Aural Rehabilitation and the four hours of CSD 175N.

Indicate pages in the undergraduate catalog where changes will be made.
pages 89-90

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
1. Either one of these classes expose audiology majors in methods pertaining to speech-language pathology and provides them with the necessary foundation for practice in audiology. There is no need to take both classes.
2. The “Symposium on Deafness”, CSD 175K, has over the years become a core component of the preprofessional development of deaf education majors, yet students do not earn academic credit, and the department cannot require enrollment in the course, because it may not be counted towards any degree. Because it does not carry academic credit, some students have considered it an optional “extra” rather than as an integral part of their degree program, to the detriment of their academic development. The proposed changes recognize the importance of this course in the major by designating it a major degree requirement counting toward the degree. The proposed new title better reflects the structure of this course.
3. CSD 175N is a core component of the preprofessional development of deaf education majors and CSD 367K and CSD 373 will be required because they are foundation courses for students who will ultimately be seeking teacher certification in education of the deaf.
