Post-Baccalaureate Prerequisite Sequence
The Post-Baccalaureate prerequisite sequence in speech-language pathology and audiology at Western Michigan University will prepare you for graduate study in speech-language pathology or audiology. It was designed for students who have a bachelor's degree in something other than communication disorders or speech, language and hearing sciences.
After completion of the sequence, students will have completed the prerequisite SLHS coursework necessary to apply to most graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology. Students are advised to confirm the specific requirements of any graduate program they are interested in attending, as these may vary. Many graduate programs require courses in topic areas other than SLHS (i.e., biology, statistics, etc.). Completing the post-baccalaureate course sequence does not guarantee admission into WMU's graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology.
