How to Apply

Applicants who wish to take the post-baccalaureate sequence should apply as undergraduates at WSU. The post-baccalaureate sequence of courses in Speech and Hearing Sciences will not qualify you for a second Bachelor of Arts in the Speech and Hearing Sciences. This one-year sequence of courses prepares you to apply to graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology.
