• Communication Sciences and Disorders

    In the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at Worcester State University, you will learn about normal human communication processes as well as speech, language, and hearing disorders that can develop in children and adults. In small classes taught by our expert faculty, you’ll hone the interpersonal, critical thinking, problem-solving, scientific reasoning, writing, and presentation skills you need to succeed in career fields ranging from health care to education.

    If you are interested in continuing your studies in areas like speech-language pathology, audiology, and speech and hearing science, you’ll have the opportunity to supplement our rigorous curriculum with additional math and science courses to provide a strong foundation for specialized study.

    Outside of class, you’ll have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations and get involved in the CSD Honors Program, WSU Honors Program, and WSU chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association. If you are majoring in a complementary field like psychology, health sciences, education, or cognate fields like nursing and occupational therapy, you can enhance your career trajectory with a minor in CSD.

    Our department also offers a graduate program in speech-language pathology that offers you the option of an accelerated, full-time or part-time curriculum. As an accepted graduate student, you'll conduct meaningful research with faculty members and engage in hands-on patient care at more than 75 practicum sites and at our own Speech-Language-Hearing Center. You also may apply for assistantships offered by our Graduate School.
