The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is one of seven departments and schools in the College of Health and Public Affairs. We have programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels in communication sciences and disorders. (See the specific program descriptions under the “Undergraduate” and “Graduate” tabs.) The department currently enrolls more than 700 bachelor’s, 200 master’s and 7 doctoral students. With 26 full-time and numerous affiliated faculty members, the department offers students a broad range of academic programs, comprehensive clinical experiences, and ongoing research opportunities in human communication sciences and disorders.
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders has two locations: the UCF Orlando campus and the UCF Communication Disorders Clinic. On the UCF Orlando campus, we are located in Health and Public Affairs building II (HPA II), Suite 101. The UCF Communication Disorders Clinic is located in the Central Florida Research Park in the Innovative Center off of Progress Drive.
The greater Orlando area is a great place to live and work. Further, our location affords us access to many professionals, agencies and facilities that serve individuals from diverse populations with language, speech, hearing and swallowing disorders across the age span. Our many national and international affiliates expand our horizons to the global community. In these venues we provide rich experiences for faculty members and students to collaborate on research and clinical services.
The faculty and staff of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Central Florida are dedicated to empower our students to achieve their greatest potential as clinicians, scientists, scholars, and professionals. By providing the foundations of our discipline and through the use of innovative technology, we enable our graduates to be leaders who positively impact individuals and their communities.
