Communicative Sciences and Disorders

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.

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.
