M.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders

The graduate program in communication sciences and disorders leads to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree.

Students must complete 36 credits of required courses, 15 credits of practicum, 6 elective credits, and 3 credits of master’s project. If students choose, they can reduce elective credits to 3 and complete a 6-credit-hour thesis instead of a master’s project.

Students without an undergraduate degree in communication sciences and disorders, referred to as “levelers,” must complete CSD 301, 370, 450, 380, 372, 472, or their equivalents in addition to the above coursework. These students can complete the program in two and a half years.
