The doctoral program is designed to prepare scholars and researchers with a capacity to develop broad theoretical and conceptual frameworks to strengthen their understanding of the major issues of human communication and its disorders. We offer our students a strong and multifaceted research-based doctoral education. Both our faculty and students come from various disciplines, with backgrounds in both the sciences and social sciences. Our faculty members conduct research on varied aspects of speech, language, and hearing processes and disorders, using methods and theoretical frameworks of cognitive neuroscience. One common theme across projects and laboratories is bilingualism and cross-linguistic studies across the lifespan in typical and clinical populations. Our overall goal is to provide our students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to continue learning and growing throughout their professional lives.
