eCurriculum Component in CQ Web Authoring System

e curriculum final output

The eCurriculum Component is particularly useful for colleges that want to have a clone of the program listing on their websites. This component will pull the data from eCurriculum and display that information in the format desired.

This method is much more preferable compared to managing such data on the local sites, since this data will update as eCurriculum is updated. This way, all of the information is stored in one place and will remain concurrent with the official information available on eCurriculum.

General Setup

The componet has 2 main options, to display a list of all programs in a certain college, choose Full college A-Z list in What to Display. This option will allow you to use the College dropdown to select which college to retrieve data from.

Alternatively, the Selection of Programs option allows you to put PASLA codes into the Programs to Display widget. If you put in only one PASLA code, it will bypass the listing and show only that program.

Communication Sciences and Disorders

Communication sciences and disorders (CSD) prepares students for professions that help people who have difficulty speaking and hearing. The study of communication disorders involves understanding the development of speech, language and hearing, as well as learning how to diagnose and treat communication disorders in adults and children. Class size in departmental courses at the undergraduate level is approximately 40 students per class, and there are 17 professors of speech/language pathology and audiology. 

Undergraduate students may join the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA), which is the national pre-professional membership organization of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for students interested in the study of communication sciences and disorders. The membership cost is minimal and includes reduced fees to the ASHA convention, other educational meetings and access to professional publications. The local UC undergraduate NSSLHA chapter meets monthly for informal sessions about the professions, often including a guest speaker. It is an active chapter with strong student participation. NSSLHA participates in many fundraisers and philanthropy projects.



Admission Requirements

The University of Cincinnati has established academic success criteria for first-year applicants to bachelor's degree programs. All students are encouraged to apply. Each individual's admissibility will be evaluated based on these criteria and on the Supplemental information required as part of the application (personal statement and list of co-curricular activities).

It is recommended that students entering from high school have a high school GPA of at least 3.0 and the following test scores: ACT: 21 Combined and/or SAT: 980 Combined (excluding the Writing). UC admits students based on academic and non-academic factors. For more information please visit the UC Admission Requirements website.

Career Possibilities

A bachelor of science in communication disorders is a pre-professional degree that prepares students for graduate work in either audiology or speech/language pathology. Students are prepared for a variety of other graduate programs as well, including social service, special education and health care. A master's degree is necessary for professional certification and licensure as a speech-language pathologist, and a doctoral degree is required to be certified as an audiologist. Graduates find careers in hospitals, speech and hearing clinics, schools, educational programs for children with disabilities, the armed services, private practices and governmental health agencies.

Additional career options are listed on the Center for Exploratory Studies website.
