About

The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services, which houses the Department of Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education, ranks in the top 2% of all graduate colleges of education.

Overview

The college was also ranked third in the nation in total research dollars received, according to “America's Best Graduate Schools” U.S. News & World Report.
The department is organized into three divisions: audiology, speech-language pathology, and deaf education.

The speech-language pathology MS degree requires students to complete a research component. The MA degree requires a comprehensive examination. Both MS and MA degrees are recognized as comparable degrees within both clinical and academic speech-language pathology settings.
The MEd is designed for students who plan to work in the deaf educational field.
The Educational Specialist (EdS) program is designed for individuals who have completed the master’s degree and who are practicing in educational settings.

  • Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MEd): This specialization is accredited by the Council on Education of the Deaf (CED) and is also approved by the Utah State Office of Education. After completing this program, students may be licensed by the Utah State Board of Education as teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, and they also meet the requirements for licensure by CED. Students who complete the curriculum are prepared to provide services as teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing in any setting in which such services are provided. This specialization has three different areas students can choose to study: 1) 0-5 early intervention, which focuses on listening and spoken language; 2) 0-5 bilingual-bicultural education, which focuses on developing American Sign Language as the first language and English as the second language; 3) K-12 bilingual-bicultural education, which focuses on developing American Sign Language as the first language and English as the second language.
  • Speech-Language Pathology (MS, MA): The speech-language pathology program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The MS and MA degrees prepare students to work with individuals of any age who have difficulties with communication or swallowing. This may include infants or children with speech, language, hearing, and literacy development problems; children and adults who stutter, have voice disorders; or children or adults who suffer speech, language and swallowing problems as the consequence of neurological disease or stroke. Students may also apply for the listening and spoken language emphasis, working with children who have hearing loss.
