Prior to starting clinical practicum, we require that you take a College level statistics course, 5 core prerequisite classes and have 25 observation hours, signed off by an ASHA Member SLP.
The five core prerequisites are: Speech and Language Science, Audiology and Hearing Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Language Development, and Phonetics and Phonology. These classes can be taken at any other institution, and are usually part of an undergraduate Communication Sciences degree. However, those who have not yet taken these courses can fulfill the requirement by spending one extra year as a Grad Plus student.
*All 5 prerequisite courses must be completed with University of Redlands even if you have completed some elsewhere.
There are 3 ways you can complete the prerequisites.
1) Take these courses at another university,
2) Take a post-baccalaureate program at another university,
3) Take the courses as a graduate student at the University of Redlands as part of your graduate program.
If you take them as a graduate student here, you will be considered a Grad Plus student.
