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 advocacy, community, diversity, collaboration, integration, and critical thinking. These values are visible throughout the curriculum across all three programs with our focus on excellence in teaching. Students in all programs have the opportunity to work closely with our exceptionally talented faculty in a carefully designed and innovative curriculum.

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