School of Communication Sciences & Disorders

School

The School of Communication Sciences & Disorders offers an undergraduate minor, a post-baccalaureate program, and a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology. All three programs are offered through the College of Education on our historic Forest Grove Campus. The post-baccalaureate program is also available entirely online.

As a school, we value community, equity, compassion, critical inquiry, advocacy, and lived experience. These values are visible throughout the curriculum across all three programs with our focus on excellence in teaching. The School of CSD stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and hold a deep commitment to inclusive practices across our teaching, research, and service.

The faculty and students in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders are active in clinical service delivery through multiple community partnerships and outreach throughout the greater Portland area.

The School of CSD faculty advance the field of speech-language pathology through our research and scholarship in theoretical and clinical science, through the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), and our engagement in service to local, regional, and national professional organizations.
