Science and Mathematics for ASHA Certification: Students who wish to pursue graduate study and obtain clinical certification in Speech-Language pathology or Audiology from the American Speech Language Hearing Association must demonstrate knowledge in the areas of biological and physical sciences, mathematics, and social-behavioral sciences. These requirements can be accomplished by taking courses in each of these four areas at the undergraduate level. However, these courses are not required for completion of the BA or the major, per se. Suggested courses to fulfill ASHA’s physical sciences requirement at Queens College include CHEM 16, 19 and 113, ENS 111 and 112, GEOL 100, 101, 7, 11, 12 and 64; PHYS 1, 7 and 121.
