Additional Notes

  • GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements..

 

ACADEMIC ADVISING NOTES:  ASHA (but not PSU) requires a human biological science and a physical science (physics or chemistry), so GN courses should be selected accordingly.  Email Joel Waters (joelwaters@psu.edu),  CSD major advisor, with questions.

       Note: For CSD majors the Writing Across the Curriculum requirement is completed once the student has passed CSD 459.

Any student interested in becoming a speech-language pathologist or audiologist should first take the GRE (Graduate Record Examination: GRE.org) during the summer between their sophomore and junior years, and for a second time during the summer between their junior and senior years.

       CSD 269 is currently the only CSD course available online through World Campus, offered every summer, fall and spring semester.

LIMITATIONS ON SOURCE AND TIME FOR CREDIT ACQUISITION Per Senate policy 83-80.5, the college dean or campus chancellor and program faculty may require up to 24 credits of course work in the major to be taken at the location or in the college or program where the degree is earned. Most majors in Health and Human Development require students to complete up to 24 credits for the major through courses taken at University Park. Courses taken at other Penn State campuses may not be counted toward this 24 credit minimum.
