Master of Health Science in Communication Disorders Mission Statement
The graduate program in Communication Disorders endorses the tenets of the mission statements of the University and of the College of Health and Human Services. The primary mission of the graduate program is to prepare students to work as speech-language pathologists in a variety of settings. The experiences provided by the program allow students to meet academic and practicum requirements for ASHA certification as well as standards for other relevant professional credentials (e.g. licensure and school certification). The program, therefore, maintains accreditation and approval necessary to achieve its mission. A related mission is to provide educational experiences to promote and support the maintenance of professional competence and credentials.
