Majors/Minors

The Communication Disorders and Sciences Department currently offers two academic majors: Speech and Language Disabilities (SLD) and Speech and Hearing Science (SHS). Both programs prepare you for admission to a master's degree program in speech-language pathology or audiology. 

Additionally, the SLD major leads to Initial Certification as a Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disability (TSSLD) in New York State.   

You are entering a master's degree profession and you should begin making long-range plans for your graduate education early in your undergraduate program. Membership in and certification by our national professional organization, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA),  is not open to those without a master's degree.
