Allied Health Pre-Speech Language Pathology & Audiology, A.S.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

Adviser: Randy Bishop

Speech-language pathologists identify, assess, and treat persons with speech and language disorders while audiologists assess and treat hearing impaired individuals. Because both occupations are concerned with communication, individuals competent in one area must be familiar with the other. The duties of speech-language pathologists and audiologists vary. Most, however, provide direct clinical services to individuals with communication disorders. In speech, language, and hearing clinics they may independently develop and implement a treatment program. In private medical centers and other facilities, they may be part of a team that develops and executes a treatment plan. In schools they may help administrators develop individual or group programs, counsel parents on prevention of hearing disorders, and assist professors with classroom activities.

The program below meets admission requirements for Andrews University and Loma Linda University, as well as Southern Adventist University’s requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can be modified to meet the requirements of other schools. For a complete description of Southern’s General Education requirements, refer to Academic Policies .
