About the Department

Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology students are exposed to a wide variety of courses in the liberal arts and sciences as well as a rigorous sequence of courses in the field, preparing them for a lifetime of helping those in need.

The study of Communication Sciences and Disorders (Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology) at MMC provides students with an understanding of the normal development of speech, language, and hearing; the theoretical bases underlying normal processes in speech, language, and hearing; communication disorders, including problems in hearing, language, articulation, voice, and fluency; the evaluation and management of these disorders; and the professional roles of the speech-language pathologist and audiologist.

In addition to a major and minors in Communication Sciences and Disorders, the Department offers practical experience at the undergraduate level. Internship opportunities are available on site at the Ruth Smadbeck Communication and Learning Center, a free clinic offering services to the public. Current students are also interning in the Department of Education, private practices, Reading Partners, and research laboratories at Teacher’s College and the City University of New York, Graduate Center, to name a few.

Our small class sizes provide the opportunity for individualized learning. You’ll interact with faculty and fellow students, both in and out of the classroom, sharing ideas and concerns, and making close friendships. You’ll become part of a close-knit group of faculty and students.

Whatever your interests and needs, our faculty are willing to spend the time to advise and help you tailor your studies to meet your academic and career objectives.
