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.
