About

The Communication Sciences and Disorders program offered by the University of Cincinnati involves the in-depth study of the various disorders of communication coupled with practicum experience in the areas of study. 

Overview

Students of the Communication Sciences and Disorders program offered by the University of Cincinnati are required to complete course work in the areas of Language and Literacy, Phonology, Aphasia, Motor Speech, Dysphagia, Cognition, Voice, Craniofacial Anomalies, Stuttering, Augmentative and Alternative Communication, management of children with hearing impairment and research.

In order to provide the master's level student with adequate advanced didactic and practicum experience with persons manifesting communication disorders, a minimum of two years of study is necessary, including two summer terms. Students who do not possess a well-rounded undergraduate major in Speech and Hearing, or those who come from other fields, must complete undergraduate requirements prior to beginning the graduate program.

In addition, all MA students must complete a research project, which may take the form of a thesis, publishable paper, or additional research course.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language pathology (CCC-SLP), licensing in the State of Ohio in speech-language pathology and State of Ohio School licensure.
