The Marywood University Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program provides academic course work and clinical experiences that prepare students for professional work in the field of speech-language pathology, audiology, or deaf studies.
Five-Year Program: Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Speech-Language Pathology. This program allows students to earn both a bachelors and masters degree in five (5) years by combining undergraduate and graduate course work and clinical experience into a five-year sequence. The bachelor program includes the core curriculum of Marywood University and all of the pre-professional courses in communication sciences and disorders. The graduate portion starts during the summer of your undergraduate third year with professional course curriculum in the field of speech-language pathology. The 5-year program provides a rigorous, intensive course sequence tailored to students who are goal oriented in the field of speech language pathology. Those students who do not meet the transition requirements to continue on to the professional phase of the program will earn only the bachelors degree.
Two-Year (Five Semesters) Master's Program: Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Speech-Language Pathology. This two-year graduate level program is offered to qualified individuals with a bachelor's degree. There is limited availability for admission to this five-semester master's level program. Students begin this program in the fall semester and finish approximately five (5) semesters later with exception of students entering the program with an out-of-field degree. These students must complete a year of CSD pre-requisite courses prior to starting the two year graduate level program. This graduate program provides individuals with professional level coursework in the field of speech-language pathology, and prepares students to pursue careers in various settings such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and private practice.
