School of Communication Sciences and Disorders
The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is committed to high quality student learning at the graduate and undergraduate level. We feel that all students should have the opportunity to learn through cooperative interaction with faculty in both clinical and academic settings. The School is housed in beautiful Berglund Hall, a LEED-Gold certified building, on the historic Forest Gove campus.
The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders currently offers a master of science degree in Speech-Language Pathology, an undergraduate minor and a post-baccalaureate prerequisite sequence.
The master's program in speech/language pathology at Pacific University is a Candidate for Accreditation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This is a "pre-accreditation" status with the CAA, awarded to developing or emerging programs for a maximum period of five years.
