About Our Department

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is actively engaged in research and scholarship, innovative in its teaching and clinical education, and is strongly committed to its advocacy and community outreach efforts. We prepare students for exciting professions which improve the lives of persons or family members who have communication disorders. 

CSD has two minors, a Bachelor of Science (BS) program in Communication Sciences and Disorders, a professional Master of Science (MS) program in Speech-Language Pathology, a professional Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program, as well as a PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders, which is specifically designed for expert clinicians who seek a leadership role as a researcher and scholar in the discipline.

Students enrolled in courses within the CSD department have the opportunity to participate in research, study abroad experiences related to the profession, and student organizations focused on increasing awareness and resources for those with communication disorders.
