Graduate Courses

Professional liability insurance is required of all students enrolled in off-campus clinical practicums in speech/language pathology or audiology. The insurance policy must cover the duration of the placement, beginning on or before the first day of the placement and extending through the final day of the placement.

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2005-2006 and 2006-2007; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes made to the course inventory after the publication of this catalog.

Unless otherwise stated below, each course meets for three lecture hours a week for one semester.
