Effective communication plays a key role in the achievement of academic, social, and vocational success and, in turn, in the development of productive and contributing citizens.

About

The philosophy of the Communication Disorders and Sciences (CDS) program is that the ability to communicate effectively is a fundamental right of all human beings. When this right is compromised through circumstances affecting any child, adolescent, or adult, society suffers along with the individual.

The CDS program is committed to the goal of preparing students to become speech-language pathologists who can work successfully with individuals of all ages who are challenged by communication disorders and who represent diverse cultural, linguistic, social, and economic backgrounds.

The ability to apply empirical evidence, logic, and a scientific perspective to the process of enhancing communication skills in meaningful and ecologically valid contexts is emphasized throughout the program.

Graduates assume positions in direct service, leadership, and research in educational, clinical, and consultation settings.
