The MS program in Communication Sciences and Disorders is designed to offer students a wide range of training experiences related to the treatment/management of communication and swallowing disorders. Students will receive academic and clinical experiences that meet the requirements for certification in Speech-Language Pathology from the Council for Clinical Certification (CFCC) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. We offer an on-campus and distance education (DE) program. Students who did NOT graduate with a BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders (or a related degree) and have NOT completed required pre-requisite courses, may apply to the Master’s Program as a provisional student. This option is only offered to students who wish to enroll in the on-campus program.
Please see the On-Campus, Distance Education, and Provisional Acceptance links for specific information regarding each delivery model.
