Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders
The programs in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders are designed
to equip students with the knowledge, clinical experiences and professional skills
to successfully begin a career in speech-language pathology, audiology or other related fields.
Our on-campus Clinical Education Center affords students the opportunity to learn
how to work with people with communication disorders across the lifespan. Our clinical
supervisors are experts in the field and they guide students in implementing speech-language
therapy in both individual and group contexts.
The speech-language pathology program at CBU is designed to integrate classroom learning
with clinical experiences. We offer many opportunities for students to practice skills
they learn in the classroom with clients in real-life situations. Most importantly,
we strive to create a collaborative, collegial learning environment by making personal
connections with all our students.
The faculty at CBU are all strongly committed to teaching and supervising students,
and we are motivated by watching students grow in their knowledge and love for the
field of speech-language pathology. Whether you prefer meeting once a semester for
advising, talking to professors after class or emailing questions/observations, you
will find our faculty value every opportunity to help students reach their maximum
