U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges - Most Innovative 2024

The MA in Communication Sciences and Disorders is intended for those interested in working with children and adults who have communication disorders. The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers the Consortium track which is designed specifically for students with a bachelor's degree in communication sciences and disorders or speech-language pathology and audiology who currently work in participating central Florida public school districts and have been providing speech and language services for at least one semester prior to application. The goal of this program is to address the critical shortage of public-school speech-language pathologists. It represents a cooperative effort between the UCF School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the Central Florida Public School Consortium. Participating school districts in the Central Florida Consortium are Brevard, Citrus, Flagler, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia.

Students must begin the program in the semester for which they are admitted and enroll every semester, including summers, for eight semesters following a prescribed sequence of academic and clinical courses. The program is offered face-to-face on the Orlando campus.

The Communication Sciences and Disorders program strives to educate students to become successful practitioners in the field of speech-language pathology. To that end, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Code of Ethics is reinforced throughout the academic curriculum. Students who violate the ASHA Code of Ethics may be subject to academic sanctions or dismissed from the program.
