The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Health Sciences at Appalachian State University is devoted to the study of human communication and associated disorders. The Department offers the Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.) in Communication Disorders and the Master of Science Degree (M.S.) in Speech-Language Pathology. The Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA), an entity within the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The CAA is authorized to accredit graduate education programs in both audiology and speech-language pathology. The undergraduate and graduate programs support the Department’s mission to prepare students for careers in speech-language pathology. The Department is home to the Charles E. and Geneva S.
