Communication Sciences and Disorders

Program Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) Program located on the New York City lower Manhattan campus of Pace University. CSD majors have access to our on-site Speech and Hearing Clinic as well as numerous off-site placements for their two semesters of clinical practicum. This undergraduate clinical practicum is unique to Pace. Research opportunities are available to interested students; many of our students have presented their work at local, state (New York State Speech-Language-Hearing Association [NYSSLHA]), and national (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association [ASHA]) conferences. CSD majors accepted to competitive graduate programs do extremely well – they successfully complete graduate programs, pass the required Praxis exam for licensure, and find employment in schools, hospitals/medical centers, early intervention, and in private practices. Classes are small, and professors develop close relationships with students. They are always available for advisement both for class schedules and for future planning. We hope you will consider attending our Program and invite you to visit us.
