Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The four-year curriculum in the CSDS program is built on a foundation of rigorous academics and code of values. Our faith-based academic coursework focuses on service, leadership, and critical thinking skills. Interprofessional education experiences with students and faculty from other healthcare disciplines are also a key component of the program. Students will have service opportunities to work alongside professionals in the community to learn by experience, working with children and adults who exhibit communication disorders.

The four-year program in communication sciences and disorders prepares the student for entry into graduate degree programs such as the master of science in speech-language pathology, or the doctor of audiology degree, which prepares the student for practice in the profession.
