Pre-Communication Disorders (Major Code: 239)

Students who are Freshman or Sophomore in credit hours are included in the pre-communication disorders program.  The Communication Disorder specific IDS course is offered to Freshman, and required by the department.  This is the student's first exposure to terminology and professionals in the field.  During the Sophomore rotation the students will take Clinical Observation, which allows students to observe professionals in the field working with clients.  25 hours of observation is required to start all Master's Level Programs.  To apply for the Communication Disorders program at the Junior level, you are required to have a 3.0 cumulative GPA, completed IDS and Clinical Observation.  Please refer to the Pre-CD course check-list to ensure that you have all your CORE courses complete.  You will need to contact Dr. Brenda Cross (bcross@wtamu.edu) or Melissa Simmons (mpicon@wtamu.edu) to get an application to the Undergraduate CD program.  Applications are due by April 1st of each year.  Our program only fall admits; however CORE courses may be completed in the summer before the admission fall.
