Undergraduate MINOR in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences

If you are interested in minoring in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, then you need to complete the following:

1. A minor in SLHS requires a minimum of 18 units, at least 12 of which must involve formal coursework. University policy requires 9 units to be upper division to meet the requirements of a minor. See "Course Options for SLHS Minor" for available courses as well as those recommended for students who intend to pursue graduate school in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology.


2. At least 12 units of the SLHS Minor must be taken at the University of Arizona.

3. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in the SLHS Minor.

4. Some courses may have prerequisites. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with the SLHS advisor and plan ahead to facilitate completing the course sequences in a timely manner.

5. For students interested in pursuing graduate studies in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology: Completing a Minor in SLHS does NOT guarantee that all prerequisites for graduate school have been met. Although SLHS Minor students are strongly encouraged to take courses that will satisfy prerequisites for graduate school, there may be situations in which this is not possible (for example, see point 6 below). Consult the Recommended Coursework for Graduate Study in Speech-Language Pathology (https://slhs.arizona.edu/SLP-prerequisites) and/or the Recommended Coursework for Graduate Study in Audiology (https://slhs.arizona.edu/students/doctor-audiology-aud) to formulate an optimal plan with the SLHS advisor.

6. Students who are pursuing a Major in SLHS receive priority over SLHS Minor students in class registration. This means that in some cases, SLHS Minor students may not be able to take a course (including required or prerequisite courses) because of limited enrollment capacity.
