Welcome to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD)!
Speech-language pathology is a U.S. News & World Report #7 Best Job, offering Georgia State students an abundance of employment and leadership opportunities upon graduation.
CSD at Georgia State is a highly ranked program and is always exploring new ways for our students to immerse themselves in the world of communication sciences and disorders. Our mission is to offer a high-quality graduate experience, which guides students to implement evidence-based services across the scope of practice in speech-language pathology.
Our M.S. degree aims to achieve this goal by providing leading-edge instruction and current research that maximizes interdisciplinary collaboration across the university. This includes a focus on normal and disordered communication processes (including speech, cognition, language and hearing) and feeding/swallowing processes.
Our students are provided with unique experiences that prepare them to address the needs of clients from various backgrounds. Each student gains field experience by completing a clinical practicum in our campus-based Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, as well as a variety of off-campus internships around the Metro-Atlanta area.
The Master of Science (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology at Georgia State is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Blvd #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
