B.S. Program Offered At UALR

Who Are We?

The Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology (AUSP) is a consortium between the College of Education and Health Professions (CEHP) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) and the College of Health Professions (CHP) at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). This unique educational consortium combines the academic and clinical resources of a large, comprehensive metropolitan research university with those of a major medical sciences campus.

B.S. Degree Program in CSD

The B.S. degree program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is ‘pre-professional’, offered through UALR. This degree program is designed to provide students with the foundational knowledge and prerequisite coursework required for graduate study in audiology, speech-language pathology, and other related fields. For greater detail about the program, see the UALR AUSP Catalog. In order to practice as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist, a professional graduate degree is required.

Post-Baccalaureate Course Sequence

Individuals who are interested in a career in speech-language pathology, but have earned an undergraduate degree in a field other than communication sciences and disorders, may enroll in the Post-baccalaureate course sequence.  The sequence provides students with the foundational knowledge and prerequisite coursework needed to apply to the majority of M.S. graduate programs. The sequence is offered through UALR and includes ten 3000- and 4000-level undergraduate courses.
