    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a requirement for all speech pathology and audiology majors. It is a tough course but it really prepares you for the graduate school curriculum and presents the knowledge that you will need in both of these careers.

    Course highlights:

    I have taken several anatomy and physiology courses (having the general background REALLY helped) but this one went more into depth when it comes to the vocal mechanisms and how we produce speech.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking general anatomy and physiology prior helps! I also took a medical terminology course that really helped as well.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I don't recommend it, but if you are a speech pathology major you have to take it. The class is extremely difficult and most people have to take it more than once.

    Course highlights:

    If you study and know every little detail about the subject we are learning, you will do well.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every single day otherwise you'll be so lost and do not skip class

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Besides the class being a necessity to be a Speech Pathologist and the only Anatomy and Physiology class focused on the discipline, this class helps you understand communication disorders better by comprehending the anatomy involved in it. The professor also ensures that you will get out of this class with a good knowledge of the anatomy an physiology of the structures involved in communication disorders.

    Course highlights:

    To be able to explore parts of me (larynx) I never thought and so many components was amazing. To understand the minuscule yet powerful functions that come along with it was overwhelmingly astonishing. Pretty breathtaking to know that there are at least 30 different muscles in your larynx helping you talk and breathe the way you do!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend lot of time exposing yourself to the material! Even if your brain is not working, just read. Familiarization will make memorization and comprehension less work. FYI: if you do not want to cry when you head for an exam, you have not put in enough effort for it ;)
