The Mission of the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department

The Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at WKU prepares students to be knowledgeable, productive and engaged leaders in professional practice. Our department provides a dynamic academic foundation to students across the globe through opportunities for lifelong learning, service and research.

About the Department

The Communication Disorders (CD) program at WKU was established in 1975. The department is a part of the College of Health and Human Services.  Distance Learning opportunities were added to the program in 1999 and have expanded to allow students to complete a Pre-SLP program, earn a Master of Science in Communication Disorders, and a Rank I Certificate online. Expansion in the department also included adding the American Sign Language Studies and Cross Cultural Communication in Healthcare programs.  The department name was changed to Communication Sciences and Disorders in July 2013.
