Communication Sciences and Disorders offers two world-class Ph.D. programs: hearing science and speech-language science. We offer students the opportunity to develop an individualized academic plan of study, access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, an exciting range of mentored research experiences, and a variety of mentored teaching opportunities with a diverse, energetic, dedicated and productive faculty who work closely with students in a positive and encouraging environment.
Students receive a minimum of three years of year-round full-time tuition expenses, plus an attractive living stipend (assuming satisfactory performance). Additional funds may be available to support continued studies based on program progress and merit.
To be considered for Ph.D. study, applicants must submit the following:
Individual interviews with the associate director, the coordinator of Ph.D. studies and/or a potential faculty mentor in the student's intended area of study are required. In-person interviews and campus visitations are highly recommended and in some cases may be required. In extenuating cases upon approval by the associate director and coordinator of Ph.D. studies when a campus interview is not possible, a phone interview may be permitted in lieu of the on-campus interview.
