The mission of the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CMSD) BA program is to provide students knowledge in normal and disordered aspects of communication across the lifespan that will prepare them for advanced degrees in the fields of audiology and speech-language pathology.  Additionally, students acquire skills in critical and creative thinking, analysis and integration, reasoning and problem-solving, information literacy, and professional communication in oral and written formats and in group and interpersonal situations. These skills can be applied to advanced studies, a variety of human service-related professions, and lifelong learning.
