MC Communication Sciences and Disorders Transfer Guide
The following is presented as a transfer guide between Morton College (MC) and Saint Xavier University's Communication Sciences and Disorders program based on the current catalogs of both schools. The student would complete an Associate of Arts (A.A.) from MC and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) from SXU. Students should begin their SXU coursework during the fall semester.
The Communications Sciences and Disorders major consists of courses that introduce students to the anatomical, physiological, neurological, psychological, developmental, linguistic, and acoustic bases of speech and language development. The undergraduate major provides a foundation for students planning to complete graduate study in speech-language pathology or audiology or who are preparing for careers in related areas.
All students who have completed the IAI general education core curriculum (IAI/GECC) are required to take two further mission-based courses at Saint Xavier University, these are: Philosophy 150: The Examined Life and one religious studies course.
