Welcome!  The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers three programs: an undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree; a graduate program leading to the Master of Science degree; and a post baccalaureate program that allows individuals with bachelor's degrees in other disciplines to prepare for graduate study in Communication Sciences and Disorders. We are located in the Health Sciences Building on the Riverpoint Campus in downtown Spokane, WA. Because we are a cooperative program with Washington State University, Eastern Washington University's Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is on a semester academic schedule although most of Eastern is on a quarter schedule.

What is Communication Sciences and Disorders?

Professional practice in Communication Sciences and Disorders involves working with people who have impairments of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing. A speech-language pathologist diagnoses and treats language, speech, and swallowing disorders. An audiologist provides diagnostic hearing and balance evaluations and aural rehabilitation services. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is a speech-language pathology program only. Students desiring to become audiologists must either earn the baccalaureate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at EWU and then transfer to a university that offers an audiology program, or enroll from the outset in a university that has an audiology program.

<p>The baccalaureate degree is considered to be pre-professional. A master's degree is required for national certification and for licensure in the state of Washington. For individuals who earned a baccalaureate degree in a discipline other than Communication Sciences and Disorders, we offer a post baccalaureate program that prepares the student for graduate study in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The Communication Sciences and Disorders graduate program&nbsp;at Eastern Washington University is accredited by the Council on <strong><a href="">Academic Accreditation&nbsp;in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA)</a></strong>. Our current accreditation cycle is from September 1, 2011, through August 31, 2019.</p><p>The majority of employment positions are in the public schools and medical settings and require a <strong>master's degree</strong>. Opportunities also exist in community agencies and in private practice. The employment outlook continues to be very positive and speech-language pathologists earn a good salary for the amount of effort that is required to be professionally certified.</p>
