    General Education Requirements

    A communication disorders curriculum provides a foundation in normal development, speech and hearing science, and communication processes. It is a pre-professional program for students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in speech-language pathology or audiology. It is recommended that students transfer to a four year program after one year at Williston State College. 

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Communication Disorders.
