Course Description

Being able to communicate with others is a fundamental human pursuit. Speech, hearing and language professionals have the privilege of bringing that gift to the community whether that be through helping someone hear for the first time, assisting a stroke patient to speak again, or investigating how children acquire language.

This course will prepare you for further study towards a career in a number of professions, including clinical work or research in audiology and speech language pathology, forensic speech science, the development of associated speech and hearing technologies, or teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). It will also provide you with a strong background in linguistics (human language) that can take you into careers such as journalism, marketing, education or management.
