The PhD program at the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is designed
to prepare students for academic-research careers in speech, language, or hearing
sciences. The School offers a Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders with two
areas of concentration: (1) Hearing Sciences and Disorders or (2) Speech-Language
Sciences and Disorders. The program is highly individualized to the needs and background
of the student and is developed in accordance with the student's research interests.
Each student will form a planning committee upon entry into the program, and an individualized
course of study will be designed to meet the student's educational and long term goals.
Mentoring is a critical component of each student's doctoral plan. Graduation requirements
vary depending on the degrees the students have when entering the program. These requirements
are listed in the graduate catalog.
