Focusing on academic vision, influence
The Moody College of Communication has made official name changes in two academic units to more accurately reflect their research, training and engagement.
First, the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) becomes the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS).
The name change reinforces the department’s vision to be “a world leader in research, educational programs, and evidence-based clinical services” in the disciplines of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
The undergraduate major name for this department is now “Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. The field of study is “SLH.” The M.A. degree will now become an M.S. in “Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences” and the Ph.D. will now be in “Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences.” All courses will now be listed under SLH.
Secondly, the School of Journalism becomes the School of Journalism and Media to better recognize the important influence of journalism and journalists in the mass media of today and tomorrow. The major code and degrees awarded will remain the same for undergraduate students. The graduate degrees in the school will become an M.A. and Ph.D. in “Journalism and Media.”
