Freed-Hardeman University will begin a Bachelor of Science degree in communication sciences and disorders this fall, pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
Housed in the Department of Biological, Physical, and Human Science, the degree is a professional preparation program that will provide students with the knowledge and training to pursue careers in practice or research in communication sciences. In addition, it will prepare students for certifications, such as the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Assistant Exam, and for further study in graduate programs.
Dr. LeAnn Davis, dean of the FHU College of Arts and Sciences, said, "We are very excited to add the communication and speech disorders program to our growing portfolio of health-related programs. Dr. Meagan Spencer will lead the development of this program. Her experience in and passion for this field will be a great benefit for the program and its students.”
Spencer holds a Doctor of Education in organizational leadership in higher education from Abilene Christian University and a Master of Science in speech-language pathology and a Bachelor of Arts in communication sciences and disorders from Harding University. Additionally, she holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and both Health Board and Professional Educators Licensures in Tennessee. She is certified in Lee-Silverman Voice Treatment for patients with Parkinson’s Disease and has conducted research on inter-professional practice in healthcare programs.
“I am excited to be developing the new Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Freed-Hardeman. This program is designed to prepare students for a multitude of career paths. From newborns in the NICU to patients in the final stages of dementia and all stages in between, professionals in communication sciences and disorders provide dignity, courage, and quality of life to patients and families. I believe this program fits the mission of the University and can provide students with a fulfilling career opportunity,” Spencer said.
