Program Admissions | Communication Sciences & Disorders Post-Bacc

Students with a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than communication sciences and disorders must complete a sequence of prerequisite courses to apply to graduate programs in speech-language pathology.


The School of CSD at Pacific University offers a post-baccalaureate program to allow students from diverse academic backgrounds to complete coursework in normal speech, language, and hearing processes in preparation for application to graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology.

The entire communication sciences and disorders post-baccalaureate course sequence may be completed online or through on-campus courses on our Forest Grove Campus. Additional information about the program is available in our frequently asked questions (FAQ).
