Master of Science or Arts

Two-Year Track

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers either a Master of Science or Master of Arts degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, with a concentration in Speech-Language Pathology.

The department’s graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Click here to learn more about the CAA.

The program offers academic and clinical curricula that provide students with the knowledge and skills required for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP). This nationally recognized professional credential is issued to individuals who present evidence of their ability to provide independent clinical services to persons who have disorders of communication.

The program’s curricula also provide students the opportunity to meet the requirements of the Virginia Board of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology for licensure in speech-language pathology.  

Three-Year Leveling Track

Students who have not earned an undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders are encouraged to apply for the 3-year leveling track.  This option allows students to complete 28 credit hours of supporting coursework in the first year of study prior to transitioning into the graduate course sequence.
