The field of Communication Sciences & Disorders focuses on evaluation, treatment, and research in human communication and related disorders. At Florida International University, the graduate program in the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders (CSD) in the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences (NWCNHS) is a 6-semester program leading to a Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP). The Department also offers a Graduate Certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders to complete the required prerequisite courses.

This CAA accredited program provides a unique bilingual emphasis and prepares graduates to work with the increasing number of bilingual individuals in need of specialized care. This bilingual competency will be a critical advantage for speech-language pathologists as the country's minority population continues to grow in the coming decades.
