The NYU Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders aims to understand, assess, and treat speech, voice, language, and swallowing disorders in individuals across the lifespan. As a result of the field's interdisciplinary nature, our graduates go on to work in speech-language pathology, medicine, linguistics, education, psychology, audiology, academia, engineering, and the sciences.
Our department offers programs of study for undergraduate, master's (on-campus and online degree options), and doctoral students. There is also a state-of-the-art speech-language-hearing disorders clinic that provides diagnostic and rehabilitative services to the public.
This interdisciplinary undergraduate major explores normal communication as well as communication disorders.
The undergraduate minor in Communicative Sciences and Disorders is designed to introduce non-CSD majors to the field.
This degree prepares you for eligibility to become a professionally licensed speech-language pathologist.
