University of Strathclyde, Scotland – Undergraduate Exchange Program
The undergraduate student exchange program with the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, involves one semester abroad during the Fall of student’s senior year. Students will spend an entire semester in Glasgow, beginning in September and ending in December. Students will be home before the Christmas holidays.
The University of Strathclyde has a reputable Speech Language Therapy major as well as a similar curriculum to the Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences major at SDSU, so students find the adjustment to the new school and classes smooth. Being at a similar institution allows for a new experience and alternative view of speech language and hearing sciences, without putting students behind in the classes expected for graduation at SDSU.
The University is located in the heart of Glasgow, bordering the Royal Infirmary, a large teaching hospital. Students will be observing Audiologists in the Royal Infirmary, as well as Speech and Language Therapists working in Glasgow, and in neighboring Scottish towns working with a variety of populations including individuals with hearing aids and cochlear implants.
Students will receive credit for major classes SLHS 503 – Low Incidence Communicative Disorders, SLHS 511 – Pediatric Aural Rehabilitation, SLHS 513 – Language Development and Disorders Early Childhood during that semester.
