Communicative Disorders Graduate Programs

The Intercampus Program in Communicative Disorders comprises the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders on the Lawrence campus and the Department of Hearing and Speech on the KU Medical Center campus. The program is directed by a committee of faculty members of professorial rank from each of the cooperating departments. The committee is responsible for instruction, curriculum planning, student selection and advising, clinical practicum policies, and course scheduling. Its recommendations are subject to review by the departments.

The program offers the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in speech-language pathology, and the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) and Ph.D. in audiology. A combined Au.D./Ph.D. track also is available. This track facilitates the completion of both degrees in a 6-year post-baccalaureate period. The Lawrence department collaborates with the departments of Applied Behavioral Science, Linguistics, and Psychology to offer a Ph.D. in child language.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences also offers undergraduate programs in Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders.

Intercampus Programs

Students pursuing graduate degrees in the programs administered by the intercampus committee take course work on the Medical Center campus in Kansas City and on the main campus in Lawrence. A student may live in either community. Block scheduling of courses reduces the frequency of commuting.

Child Language Program
