Our Program has a new name!

We are now the Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders!

Welcome to the Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders, formerly known as the Program in Speech and Language Pathology.  As you search our website, and the Teachers College website, you may notice places where our former Program name still appears.  The change in our Program name took effect on September 1st, 2014; it may take us some time to completely update our website as well as the Teachers College website.  We appreciate your patience as we make this transition. 

Our new Program name, Communication Sciences and Disorders better reflects the depth and breadth of the academic and clinical training that Master’s students receive in our program. Students who graduate from our program are eligible for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (ASHA CCC-SLP) as well as New York State licensing in Speech-Language Pathology.  Students may also elect to apply for the Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities Certificate (TSSLD) and the TSSLD extension in bilingual speech-language pathology.
The Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders is accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).  More information about this accreditation can be found here.
