Summer Abroad for Grad Students
The Communicative Sciences and Disorders Summer Program offers post-baccalaureate and master's- level students in Communicative Sciences and Disorders and postmasters speech-language pathologists an opportunity to earn six graduate credits (two courses) or sixty New York State Continuing Education Units while living and studying in Sweden. Sweden is a country known for its state-of-the-art approaches to speech science and speech disorder remediation. Housed in the Department of Logopedics and Phoniatrics in the Medical School of Lund University in Sweden, the program combines lectures with directed enrichment activities.
The Department of Logopedics and Phoniatrics provides an ideal setting for the summer Study Abroad Program. The program uses the available expertise of Lund University neurologists, otolaryngologists, radiologists, linguists and speech pathologists to create a setting in which course content is taught and discussed from a multicultural perspective. Visits to Malmö University hospital, The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University or the University of Gothenburg are integrated in the program. Students are exposed to current research projects in an international environment that supports both basic as well as applied research.
All participants must take both courses and participate in required field trips to institutes, hospitals or rehabilitation centers. Each course meets for 7.5 hours per week for five weeks, leaving Fridays free for trips and enrichment activities.
Fall Abroad for Undergraduate Students
For the first time, the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders will be offering a course at an NYU study abroad site beginning in Fall 2015! The course, Contemporary Issues in Health Services in the United Kingdom: An Experiential Approach (4 credits), is a mix of seminar class meetings and site visits to clinical facilities in the London metropolitan area.
The class and the site visits will focus on clinical service provision in the UK as compared to the US and will introduce students to the range of disciplines represented on a clinical interdisciplinary team.
