Communication Sciences and Disorders
Our Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program provides broad-based instruction to prepare students to diagnose and treat a variety of hearing and speech disorders in children, the elderly, or patients who have suffered speech or hearing trauma. Our graduate degree program prepares students for the clinical practice of speech-language pathology, working with both children and adults to evaluate and diagnose disorders associated with speech, language, cognition, communication, and swallowing.
