Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) offers a two-year, six-semester program of study to prepare graduate students to meet national certification standards for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and complete their clinical fellowship to enter into independent practice as speech-language pathologists. The CSD graduate program is essential in filling critical personnel shortages to serve individuals, infants to adults, with speech, language, cognitive, feeding/swallowing, hearing, and related disorders.

The Master of Science (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology (residential) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.

Candidates who are interested in applying to our graduate program are encouraged to review our CSD website for more information and admission criteria.

CSD also offers an online Speech Pathology and Audiology Prerequisite Program (SPAPP) through the John A. Burns School of Medicine and UH Mānoa Outreach College. This program offers foundational undergraduate CSD courses required for admission into graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology.
