BA in Communication Science
For students considering a career in speech-language pathology or audiology, this undergraduate major provides the scientific foundation upon which subsequent graduate academic or clinical training is appropriately based.
We offer both Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees. Students who complete a master’s thesis are potentially eligible for the MS degree. The program offers two specializations: speech-language pathology and audiology.
The Doctor of Clinical Science (CScD) is an advanced professional doctoral program recommended for the student or practicing speech language pathologist seeking to learn state-of-the-science information and clinical skills.
Studying audiology at the University of Pittsburgh puts you ahead of the game. The professional Doctorate of Audiology (AuD) will be the required entry-level degree for audiologists by 2012, and it is strongly recommended for all entering the profession at this time.
The CSD research doctoral program is oriented toward scientific inquiry in the discipline of communication science and disorders. Many doctoral program experiences are individually tailored and designed to meet a variety of academic and professional goals.
