Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders
About the Department
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is home to undergraduate and graduate training programs that explore the basic and clinical aspects of human speech, language and hearing and their impairments. Our undergraduate program has been successfully preparing students to meet the licensing requirements of the Ministry of Health since 2001. Our graduate program has been providing in-depth focused training in advanced audiology and speech and language pathology since 2010.
Our faculty members are senior scientists and clinicians maintaining active research and clinical programs. Researchers in the department are exploring processes that underlie hearing and language and their development and are actively engaged in programs intended to improve the standard of care and rehabilitation in those areas. They regularly publish their works in leading professional journals and receive external research supports from various funds. Our clinical faculty is dedicated to the training and clinical education of our students and to community service. Many of them also hold senior positions in health, rehabilitation and outreach organizations.
