Speech & Hearing Curriculum

The Elmira College undergraduate program in Speech and Hearing provides students with two routes to the B.S. degree. The non-teaching major prepares students for continued studies in graduate schools. The Speech and Language Disabilities major leads to the New York State initial certificate in Speech and Language Disabilities. Both options provide students with a sound basis for continued study and ultimately for certification by the American Speech/Language/Hearing Association.
