The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers an undergraduate pre-professional program in communication sciences and disorders (BS) which provides the appropriate coursework and experiences for graduate work in audiology or speech-language pathology.

We offer graduate professional programs in Audiology (AuD) and Speech-Language Pathology (MA). Students in these programs enjoy a balance of coursework, research and carried clinical practice experiences, excellent and caring faculty, and a variety of clinical experiences.
