About our Non-degree Seeking Program
For those not seeking a degree through USU, courses are available for credit on an individual basis. Generally, students enrolled in other universities are referred to us in order to take courses relevant to their area of study. We offer a wide array of courses in communication sciences and disorders or CSD, covering topics such as the basic structure and function of the human ear, hearing loss treatments, the factors affecting language acquisition, and types of communication disorders.
These courses allow students with bachelor’s degree in other majors to apply for graduate programs in the high-demand, rewarding professions of speech-language pathology and audiology (called leveling). Many undergraduate majors provide excellent foundations for leveling in communication sciences and disorders, including education, psychology, linguistics, biology, sociology, and human development.
