Communication Sciences and Disorders


Instilling Respect and Understanding for Individuals with Communication Disabilities

We prepare students to become clinicians who can assess and treat culturally and linguistically diverse populations with speech, language and hearing disorders.

The mission of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is to provide students with a strong understanding of the connections between the scientific bases of our discipline and its clinical practices. We strive to prepare the finest professional and ethical research-based clinicians who can assess and treat children and adults with communication disorders within our scope of practice and from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
