Pace University’s Master of Science (MS) in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students for exciting careers as speech-language pathologists, which evaluate, treat, and research communication disorders such as stuttering, voice and articulation disorders, and delayed language development.


The mission of the Pace University Graduate Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders is to prepare highly competent speech-language pathologists that support mastery of necessary skills for students to lead rewarding, intellectually and civically engaged lives. 

This mission requires that students develop abilities in written and oral communication, critical and analytic thinking, synthesize information from various sources, evidence-based decision making, leadership, and the importance of context for understanding issues, essential in an increasingly diverse and global world. 

The CSD profession, by nature, requires the student to embody these skills as well as perspective taking, the ability to collaborate with health professionals in various disciplines, and the ability to connect theory to practical experience.

 Graduates from this Program will be eligible for American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certification as well as other relevant local and state credentials upon graduation.
