Recommended Prerequisite for anatomy and physiology of speech, language, hearing mechanism

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my first post here :)

I am an out-of-field applicant for Master 2019 fall. I have taken some of the prerequisites in my school, but I still need to make up for some of them through online leveling courses. I have searched the leveling courses recommended here. However, I cannot decide which school I should choose.

  1. USU -- It's the cheapest among all the options, and the online courses are known to be stable and well established. Nevertheless, the course I need to take is anatomy and physiology of speech, language and hearing mechanism, but the course on their curriculum is "fundamentals of anatomy for speech and language." I am not sure whether I can take the course because the name of the course is kind of different. Does it only include anatomy or also include physiology? Also, this course in USU apparently doesn't include hearing part, which means I may need another course to make up for anatomy of ear.

  2. ENMU -- Many people also recommend this school for its low price and 8-week accelerated course, which is really fascinating to me. However, I browsed through the discussion chain on the gradcafe and found out that the professor who teaches this course seems get lots of negative feedback from students and low scores on Ratemyprofessor.com. I am not sure whether the course should be avoided or not.

  3. University of Montana

  4. University of Longwood                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Because my major in college is Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, I am not so familiar with the science related subject. Even though I have taken Speech Science, I still feel kind of nervous about A&P course. I really want to find a course that are friendly to beginners rather than being demanding and pushing.Thank you very much! There are also positive feedback about the leveling courses of the two schools, but I cannot find information about whether students specifically recommend A&P course in the program.If anyone have any information about the A&P courses in the programs above, please feel free to share your thoughts! :)

Not sure about the other schools but CSUSM offers a course by that exact title “Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech and Hearing Mechanism” online and it’s an accelerated 8 week course.

I took the Anatomy course through USU and I needed to complete 2 in order to meet the requirements set at UNM. USU divides the anatomy into the speech mechanism (1class) and the ear (a 2nd class). Maybe if you take both classes it'll count as the anatomy requirement you need? Check with your advisor
