The Department of Communication Disorders offers curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in communication disorders, the Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in communication disorders with a concentration in speech-language pathology, the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree, and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree with a concentration in either speech-language pathology (SLP) or audiology (AUD). The department also offers students interested in an advanced research degree in audiology the option of completing the academic and clinical requirements necessary for professional credentialing while concurrently enrolled in the Ph.D. program (i.e., the Ph.D. program with a clinical track option). The M.A. program in communication disorders, the Au.D program, and the Ph.D. program with the optional clinical track are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The M.A. program in communication disorders with a concentration in speech-language pathology is also accredited by the Massachusetts Board of Education.
