When the ability to communicate is disrupted, every aspect of daily life is affected. The MS Communication Sciences and Disorders program from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee prepares you to work as a speech-language pathologist (SLP).


SLP’s work with clients and their families to improve communication skills and cope with the difficulties of communication and swallowing disorders. You’ll use your expertise to treat conditions such as stuttering, delayed language development, aphasia, dysphagia, and voice and articulation problems.

University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.


  • Our program — which includes two full-semester placements in the community with the option of a third mini-placement — prepares you for both educational and medical settings to maximize your career flexibility.
  • You’ll work in our state-of-the-art laboratories and instructional facilities, including our Speech and Language Clinic and Speech Science Lab, where you’ll have access to the latest acoustic analysis equipment.
  • All of our students participate in research, either through a thesis or by working closely with a faculty mentor on their research projects.
  • Our dedicated, caring faculty members are committed to your success, whether that’s by making time for a one-on-one meeting or observing and consulting on difficult cases in the clinic.
  • We offer all of the opportunities of a metropolitan area at an affordable price. Our location gives you easy access to off-campus externships in medical, rehabilitation and school sites.
