The Communications Sciences and Disorders Post-Baccalaureate Certificate is designed for students who are interested in applying to a graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. After the completion of a bachelor’s degree in another field and the CDIS Post-Bac Certificate, students will fulfill the prerequisites needed for a majority of Speech-Language Pathology and/or Audiology graduate programs, as well as the basic science requirements mandated by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
Beginning March 2022, all applicants who are either currently pursuing or have a post-baccalaureate certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders need to complete three courses (Phonetics, Anatomy and Physiology, and Communication Disorders in Children) within the fall semester before they can be considered for admissions to graduate program for the next academic year at Oklahoma State University.
The demand for speech-language pathology is expected to grow 18% by 2026. Upon the completion of a bachelor’s degree and the post-bac certificate, students have many options, including:
- Speech-Language Pathology graduate programs
- Audiology graduate programs
- English as a Second Language programs
- Speech-Language Pathology Assistant (click here for information on our SLP-A program)
