Specialty Tracks / Unique Features:
The Honors Tutorial College (HTC) Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) aims to provide qualified students with a research-oriented undergraduate experience through individualized training in the hearing, speech and language sciences. As with all other HTC programs at Ohio University, the philosophy of the HTC program in CSD is based on the idea that education is aimed at intellectual growth rather than static transmission of knowledge. Students are seen as active participants of their education rather than passive receivers of instruction. They are also expected to cultivate scientific ways of thinking in addition to obtaining factual knowledge. Consequently, high motivation and intellectual independence are the qualities expected of HTC students. Compared to the traditional baccalaureate CSD program, the individualized nature of the HTC program requires the students to assume more responsibility in their own education.
