The Master of Science (M.S.) Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders is a graduate program providing academic and clinical training for professional practice as a Speech-Language Pathologist. The curriculum prepares students for the National Examination in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology-leading to a Certificate of Clinical Competence.
Students acquire skills in formally and informally conducting assessments for diagnosis and implementation of goals for the treatment of individuals of all ages with disorders of articulation, language, voice and fluency. Students learn to theorize about disorders, engage in self and client evaluations using behavioral measurements, and effectively articulate client-related information in both written and oral communication.
