Undergraduate Degree Programs

The Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology is a pre-professional degree. Since the graduate degree is the recognized entry-level degree for both professions in all employment settings, the purpose of the degree is to prepare students to enter graduate programs in either Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology.

Completion of an undergraduate degree does not prepare students for employment as Speech-Language Pathologists or Audiologists. Students selecting Speech Pathology as a major should be aware that successful completion of the bachelor's degree does not guarantee admission to the graduate program at the University of Central Missouri or any other college or university. Admission to graduate programs in Communication Disorders is highly competitive because of the limited number of students that may be admitted in order for programs to meet accreditation standards of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
