Thoughtful treatment to improve communication

Are you a compassionate problem-solver eager to help people overcome their barriers to communication by using both creative thinking and technology? Then you’re in the right place!

As a student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in communication sciences and disorders, you’ll study the science behind communication disorders and their development. The discipline encompasses disorders of speech, language, communication, swallowing, hearing and balance. You’ll learn how to treat children and adults with these disorders and investigate new strategies and technologies for diagnosis, habilitation and rehabilitation.

You’ll learn from dedicated faculty who are not only compassionate teachers but also successful professional speech-language pathologists. Preparing you for graduate school or state licensure as a speech-language pathology assistant, your pathway will offer a practical, hands-on approach to training that emphasizes the integration of evidence-based practice.

Great career potential

As a speech-language pathology professional, your job outlook is very strong. Our graduates work in private practice, pediatric rehabilitation, home health agencies and school settings.
