The Division of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) is actively engaged in research and scholarship, innovative in its teaching and clinical education, and is strongly committed to its advocacy and community outreach efforts. We prepare students for exciting professions which improve the lives of persons or family members who have communication disorders.
CSD has two minors, a Bachelor of Science (BS) program in Communication Sciences and Disorders, a professional Master of Science (MS) program in Speech-Language Pathology, and a professional Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program.
Students enrolled in courses within the Division of CSD have the opportunity to participate in research, to take part study abroad experiences related to the profession, and to join student organizations focused on increasing awareness and resources for those with communication disorders.
We support, mentor, and engage students to be curious, competent, caring professionals who positively impact the profession and the diverse individuals we serve in West Virginia and beyond.
