Program Information

School:Brock University
Faculty:Faculty of Humanities
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Communication Disorders Sciences and Services, Other
Description:Are you interested in how children acquire language, how the skills of second-language speakers develop, how various language disorders can be diagnosed and treated, or how social or cultural environments interact with language? In our program, you’ll gain a strong foundation in linguistics, hands-on fieldwork, clinical observation, teaching practice, and practical workshops to supplement your academic courses.

Students in this major have the opportunity to learn about basic sciences (e.g, biology), basic communication processes, including the anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing, acoustics, linguistics, child language development, and about selected disorders of human communication. Honours students have the opportunity to prepare for admission to graduate study in Speech-Language Pathology; admissions to graduate schools are, however, offered only on a competitive basis. The minimum qualification to practice Speech-Language Pathology in Canada and the United States is a Master's degree. Satisfactory completion of the first three years of the Honours program in Hearing Sciences entitles a student to apply for a Pass degree.
