Communication Sciences and Disorders
Option in Early Childhood Intervention or Language and Literacy Disabilties,
The graduate program integrates an array of academic and clinical experiences to prepare students for a variety of careers in speech-language pathology. The program offers a master of science degree program in communications sciences and disorders. Students can elect to self-design their program, choosing from an array of required and elective courses that best suit their career objectives. This is referred to as the "no option" concentration. Two additional options: language/literacy disabilities and early childhood are available to those students seeking particular expertise in one of these areas. Irrespective of which of the three options a student selects, the program of study will prepare them to treat the full range of communication disabilities across the life span.
Faculty and students are actively engaged in research activities. Their projects include examinations of the efficacy of language intervention for adults with aphasia, management of motor speech deficits, functional outcomes of augmentative and alternative communication, role of communication in fostering inclusive education, relationships between language and literacy, and ways of enhancing the process of clinical supervision.
