Minors in Communication Sciences are available to undergraduate students in two concentration areas: Deaf Education and Speech-Language Pathology.  Students should complete a declaration of minor form, as well as an application to the Department of Communication Sciences.  Twenty-one course hours are required for each track.

Deaf Education

Students aspiring to be teachers of the deaf should be preparing for a graduate program in Deaf Education.  In order to obtain certification as a “Highly Qualified Teacher” under No Child Left Behind, students may prepare to be certified to teach in a content area at the undergraduate level through coursework in the Department of Education and an area of concentration (math, science, reading, early childhood), and then obtain credentialing in deaf education at the graduate level.  Students completing the Deaf Education track minor become eligible candidates for entry to TWU’s graduate program in Deaf Education, Cohort A, a twelve-month long graduate program.
