The educational mission of the Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Harding University is to prepare highly competent speech-language pathologists in a rigorous academic curriculum with an emphasis on Christian living. The program is designed to reflect the University goal of integrating faith, learning and living in order for the students to function within professional and global communities.
The undergraduate communication sciences and disorders major is preprofessional in nature and is strongly recommended for students planning to pursue a master's degree and certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), 2200 Research Blvd. #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
Students receive their clinical experience under the supervision of ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists. The program supports the ASHA position that the graduate degree should be the minimum requirement for professional certification. Administrative offices for this program of study are located in the Nursing and Communication Sciences & Disorders building.
