In recent years, Languages, Literatures, and Cultures has noticed an increase in students majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) who also want to major or minor in a world language. Dr. Laura Edwards, academic advisor and instructional assistant professor of French, Italian, and World Languages Teaching, reached out to three current students to learn more about their attraction to both content areas.

In this podcast, Kristiana, Stephanie, and Arianne, all CSD majors and minors in French and both French and Spanish, have a lively discussion about communication, language, personal and professional interests, and where they find connections between their CSD and their French and/or Spanish courses at Illinois State University.
