Communications Sciences and Disorders

Communications Sciences and Disorders students

The Elmira College undergraduate program in Communication Sciences and Disorders provides students with two routes to the B.S. degree. The non-teaching major, Speech and Hearing, prepares students for entry into graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. The Speech and Language Disabilities major leads to the New York State initial teaching certificate in Speech and Language Disabilities. Both options provide students with a sound basis for continued study and ultimately for certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

All faculty hold professional state licensure and the Certificate of Clinical Competence from ASHA.   ASHA guidelines are adhered to in order to prepare students for graduate school and, ultimately, for certification by ASHA. EC’s Speech and Language Disabilities major has been accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).
