We offer many internship opportunities at Elmira, and most majors include a career-related internship course as part of the curriculum. That’s why 100% of undergraduate students participate in at least one internship before graduation.

As part of the Communication Sciences and Disorders program, the internship requirements differ depending on your major. Speech and Hearing students must complete 3.00 credit hours with an internship, and Speech-Language Pathology students must complete 12.00 credit hours with an internship to fulfill their teaching requirements.

You'll have a number of opportunities throughout your undergraduate studies to go abroad through the College's unique Term III. Recent courses include Globalization and Change in Southeast Asia, Natural and Social History of Eastern Australia, and a business and cultural tour of the UK and Ireland.

Getting involved with student clubs and organizations is an opportunity to meet fellow students that share your passions and academic goals. Communication Sciences and Disorders majors can join a number of academic and special-interest clubs where you can get to know your peers and expand on your knowledge.

Elmira College students have the opportunity to become involved in our affiliated chapter with the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA). The NSSLHA is the only national student organization for preprofessionals studying communication sciences and disorders (CSD) recognized by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Established in 1972, the NSSLHA supports 13,400+ members and 300+ chapters at colleges and universities nationwide.

Silent Voices is the American Sign Language (ASL) club. Songs in ASL are performed at various events on campus, including the Octagon Fair, the Dance Marathon, archway singing, and the Speech and Hearing Clinic's annual client holiday party.
