My Majors

Hi everyone! Classes started for me this past week, and with that I decided I would talk a little about my major. Monday was the first day of my classes that are completely centered on my major, which I am super excited about.

For those of you who do not know I am majoring in speech and hearing sciences. My plan is to get my masters in speech language pathology and my doctorate in audiology.  I plan to specialize in a few things, but as of right now I am planning on working with children and veterans.

I originally decided to major in speech language pathology, because of my experiences in speech therapy. I was very blessed to have a great speech therapist, and was able to correct my lisp in a short amount of time. I want to be able to make a difference in someone else’s life the way my speech therapist did for me.

A few months into my major I decided I also wanted to be an audiologist. After becoming more familiar with cochlear implants and hearing loss I realized that this was my ultimate goal, and that I wanted to be an audiologist. I wanted to see the excitement people feel when being able to hear clearly again for the first time in their life.

I love my classes so far, and look forward to the rest of the semester. I also am looking forward to completing my major and starting to work in this field. What inspired you all to choose your majors? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. That’s awesome! Two of my girls were/are in speech and it helped them in leaps and bounds. So grateful for their speech pathologists.
    I’ve always wanted to be a marine biologist since studying it in high school. Never had the opportunity to, but maybe one day.
