Guidelines for the Advanced W

Advanced Writing Proficiency

Advanced Writing Proficiency is evaluated within the major during the senior year. This proficiency is demonstrated by the approval of a professional or scientific paper based on a directed research project or clinical case study.

Senior Comprehensive

Students may choose one of the two types of Senior Comprehensive projects in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. The Senior Comprehensive is fulfilled by successful completion of an empirical research study that the student proposes and conducts independently, or a portfolio containing an extensive review of the literature on a communicative disorder, therapy plans and a treatment summary for an assigned client. Students are required to give an oral presentation to the department.
