Since 1937, Ohio University’s Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program has served as a model for best practice in universities across the U.S. and abroad.
These include the CSD Undergraduate Research Club, the OHIO Respite Volunteer Program, and the Hearing, Speech and Language Clinic. The program has a long-standing reputation for providing quality services to people of all ages in nine counties in southern Ohio, one of the most severely medically underserved regions in the state.
- CSD at OHIO is in the top 8 percent of undergraduate programs in the U.S., according to the latest Gourman Report. The school is ranked first in the state of Ohio - the state with more programs in the field than any other state except New York.
- U.S. News and World Report list both the MA and AuD programs in the top 50 graduate programs in their disciplines.
- Unlike most university-based clinics, ours operates as a clinical business enterprise in multiple sites.
- CSD faculty members are known internationally for their research and clinical expertise. Current funding sources include the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation, and several private companies and foundations.
- PhD students also have ongoing success with research awards (including current awards from the NIH, the ASHF, the American Auditory Society, and several from other industry organizations).
