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. 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.
