Undergraduate CDS Program

The bachelor's degree is a pre-professional degree and is not sufficient for practice as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist. At Eastern Illinois University, a bachelor's degree in communication disorders and sciences requires 120 semester hours of coursework and is typically completed in four years.  Undergraduates begin treating clients in Eastern's Speech Clinic during their senior year. Transfer Students with an associates degree complete a bachelors degree in two years without an undergraduate clinical assignment or two and a half years if they opt to enroll in clinic as an undergraduate.
