The graduate program in Communication Disorders and Sciences (CDS) culminates in a masters of sciences degree and prepares recipients to assume entry-level positions as speech-language pathologists. To be considered for admission to the CDS graduate program in speech-language pathology, applicants must have either a bachelor?s degree in communication disorders and sciences, or a bachelor?s degree in another discipline and all prerequisite undergraduate coursework.
Admission is competitive, and is decided by a graduate faculty committee following a thorough review of the applicant?s materials. Meeting the GPA requirement alone does not ensure admission. Students who are not admitted to the program may be eligible to enroll in some CDS courses with non-degree seeking status.
