Bot the Major and Minor in Communicative Sciences and Disorders trains students in the understanding of both normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, and hearing. The major is designed to equip students with knowledge and emerging skills for the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders through CSD courses.
Our students learn both in the class and in the field, working in labs, clinics and hospitals and learning from experienced professionals in communicative sciences and disorders.
