The Communication Disorders and Sciences (CDS) master’s degree is designed to prepare graduates to make significant contributions as speech-language pathologists. The program provides students with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary for work with individuals who have cognitive-communicative and swallowing challenges and who represent all ages and diverse social, cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
