Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is officially a Department as of July 1, 2018! We’re looking forward to growing and exploring new ways for our students to immerse themselves into the world of communication sciences and disorders.
Our mission is to offer a high quality graduate experience, which educates 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 clinical practicum in our Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic on campus, as well as in off-campus internships in various settings around Metro-Atlanta.
