    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Taking the introduction class to communication disorders was one of the my first classes I've taken for the major and it wasn't too challenging figuring it was a class I took with not much background information. It was a little about everything that this major offers so it was pretty interesting so i would recommend this class to everybody, whether they have background information on this major or not.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was having to observations which consisted of watching an hour long video of speech pathologist and there clients. This allowed me to get a taste of what it's like to be a clinician working with a client. I had to do 3 observations so I really enjoyed it because I was able to see many different situations such as age, race, and what type of disorder they had. Since this was the introduction class about every week we learned a new topic. It varied from knowing the different types of stuttering, the anatomical features of how our mouth works as well as the physical features. This class was packed with information that prepared me for what each class was going to be about, so it was very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course is to be prepared to do observation hours and be willing to do them after class or even before class. This class wasn't a tough class but it was very time consuming figuring there was assignments weekly, quizzes, tests, as well as the observations. But its a great starter course to get you familiar with what the major offers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an excellent introduction to the field of Communication Disorders. It provides you with a high level understanding of the different courses that you will later take. It definitely allowed me to figure out if this was a field that I wanted to major in.

    Course highlights:

    This introduction course covers areas about the different work settings, education needed for each setting, exams and certifications needed for the state of California and an introduction to various topics in communication disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not miss school, not for this class and not for any of your university classes. You may find yourself if you miss and unfortunately if you miss a class meeting you might have also missed a quiz or an in-class written assignment. Give yourself time to study for an exam ahead of time. These are good student habits for any class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Horner's passion for the field is infectious and she thoroughly explains every concept and topic discussed in class. In addition, I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in speech pathology of audiology, since this class establishes the foundations.

    Course highlights:

    Communication Disorders is a very interdisciplinary field, so topics ranged from cognitive development, anatomy and physiology and linguistics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She has weekly quizzes on Friday, so make sure to do those.
