Welcome Message

Welcome to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Thanks for visiting our Website. I hope you find the information you need about our programs on these Web pages.

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.

We also offer the PhD in speech-language pathology, audiology and speech, language and hearing sciences, with the goal of preparing future faculty for roles in teaching and research. The presence of our wonderful PhD students adds to the vibrant research and clinical atmosphere in the program through their interactions with faculty and other undergraduate and graduate students.

The research and clinical activities in French East make it an exciting place with faculty who enjoy national and international reputations for their contributions to their professions. We have financial assistance available in the form of graduate assistantships, fellowships and scholarships, which are dependent upon available funds.

We encourage you to come to visit and talk with our faculty and students.
