Communication Sciences and Disorders

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Oklahoma! 

Our programs are located in the College of Allied Health on the OU Health Sciences campus in Oklahoma City. The OUHSC is a constantly expanding and comprehensive medical campus known for excellence in healthcare provision, clinical education, and basic and applied research. We are proud to partner with professionals in every field of medicine and healthcare to train the next generation of professionals treating patients with disorders of hearing, speech, language, balance, and swallowing. 

Our department offers programs at the undergraduate (Bachelor of Science) and professional (Master of Arts in SLP, Doctor of Audiology) levels.  Our AuD program is the only one in Oklahoma, and all of our programs are the top-ranked degree programs in the state by US News and World Report.  Additionally, we are one of only a few programs in the nation to train speech-language pathologists and audiologists on a comprehensive medical campus, offering a depth and breadth of clinical rotation opportunities that few programs can match. 

We hope you will consider joining the ranks of our outstanding students and alumni. For more information on each of our degree programs, please click the links on the left.  You can also use the menu at left to:
