The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers a B.S. degree in CSD and an M.S. in SLP. The first cohort of graduate students began the M.S. program in Fall 2020. This position is an exciting opportunity for a new faculty member to join a dedicated group of six full-time and four part-time colleagues. Graduate class sizes are typically 15 students and undergraduate classes usually range from 20-40 students. The CSD department is large enough to offer students a wide range of academic and clinical experiences yet small enough so that students and faculty have the opportunity to get to know each other outside the classroom.
