Communication Sciences and Disorders

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) at Wichita State University engages students in practical hands-on experiences through our campus clinic and partner facilities.

Clinical graduate programs prepare students for careers as speech-language pathologists and audiologists who provide evaluation and treatment of speech, language and hearing disorders in hospital, school and private practice settings and serve clients of every age.

Our Ph.D. program is individualized to prepare scholars for careers in research, teaching and advanced clinical practice.

WSU offers an exceptional academic and clinical education for CSD students with nationally ranked programs that are highly regarded by employers. If you want a rewarding career helping others, this is the place for you. Email at: or call us at 316-978-3240.
