Movement Science and Education
Neuroscience and Education
Neuroscience and Education was the first graduate program in the country to focus on the educational and clinical implications of recent advances in understanding brain-behavior relationships. One objective of the multi-disciplinary program is to prepare a new kind of specialist: a professional with dual preparation able to bridge the gap between research underlying brain, cognition and behavior, and the problems encountered in schools and other applied settings. A second objective is to provide rigorous training and relevant experiences that would allow students to further their knowledge and make links between neuroscience, cognition, education, and clinical practice.
The M.S. program is intended for professionals and non-professionals alike who would like to acquire knowledge in fields related to neuroscience, and participate in ongoing research, educational, or clinical practice. Graduates from the program may continue in their respective areas of professional specialization, while others develop careers in research settings or apply to doctoral programs for further study.
Communication Sciences and Disorders
The graduate programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders are dedicated to the advancement of science and art associated with the study of all aspects of human communication, and the prevention and treatment of its disorders across the lifespan. The programs offer advanced education and training in the processes of individual human communication (speech, hearing, language, and upper aero-digestive disorders), disorders of human communication, and swallowing and remedial procedures for such disorders. Graduates are prepared for positions in a variety of professional settings: school systems, community speech and language centers, rehabilitation centers, hospital clinics, private practice, state departments of education, health departments, federal agencies, and colleges and universities.
