Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders

Connecting Liberal Arts, Health, and Education

Communication Sciences and Disorders majors at UVM study the form and structure of speech and language, and how speech and language skills are learned, produced, perceived and understood. We offer the only program in the state of Vermont that prepares students to become speech-language pathologists (SLPs).

Unique to our Department is the degree of cooperative work undertaken by students and faculty in the study and practice of basic and clinical sciences and in their application to people in need of help with communication, the most human of all behaviors.
