Communication Sciences and Disorders

Students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program are prepared for graduate studies in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP). Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) help people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, develop or regain the ability to speak, read, write and think clearly, and swallow properly. SLPs also provide extensive patient and family education. Common work environments include hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, schools and daycare settings.
