Graduate Program in Communication Sciences & Disorders

Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers graduate programs leading to the master’s and doctoral degrees in speech-language pathology.

Because of its focus on infusing cultural diversity throughout the curriculum, Howard University is an ideal place to pursue graduate education in speech-language pathology, The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers two graduate degrees leading to the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology and the Ph.D. in Communication Science. The master’s degree program is fully accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and meets all of the requirements needed to prepare graduates for careers as speech-language pathologists. Master’s students may choose from one of four tracks for specialization: educational, bilingual, medical speech-language pathology or technology. In addition, the Master’s program has excellent graduation, employment and Praxis pass rates.

Doctoral students may choose either the adult neurological track or the child language track. The doctoral curriculum has been updated recently to reflect the most current theory and research in the field. Candidates for the Ph.D. may elect to complete the more traditional dissertation or elect to develop their research project in the form of three (3) peer-reviewed articles. Alumni of the Ph.D. program are acknowledged leaders in the academe, government, research facilities, health care organizations, and ASHA. 

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is strategically located in Washington, D.C. and near the health sciences complexes at Howard University. Clinical and research experiences are available to students at this complex and throughout the University including the University Speech and Hearing Clinic and Howard University Hospital, as well as regionally in government, educational and health care institutions throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area.

We provide students with a strong scientific foundation and mentoring to succeed in graduate school. The department is nationally recognized because of its outstanding faculty, concentrated focus on multiculturalism, quality of comprehensive training and well-organized curricula.

Admission FAQs

When is the application deadline?
Check the Graduate School website for the admissions deadline.  This deadline is for submission of the online application.  Your supporting credentials can be uploaded separately.

What is the minimum GRE requirement?
The program does not specify a minimum GRE score.  GRE scores are considered along with GPA and other credentials.

Do you hold an open house?
Yes, the open house is usually scheduled in early spring.  Contact the department to get on our mailing list for notification of the open house.

Is it possible to be a part-time student?
Yes. Part-time study is possible in both the Master’s and Ph.D. programs.

How many applications do you receive and what is your acceptance rate?
The number and quality of applications varies by year.  The acceptance rate is approximately 25 %. The master’s program limits enrollment to 20 students per class.
 
When will I be notified of the admission decision?
Your application file cannot be reviewed until all credentials have been received.  Be sure to request original transcripts from all institutions attended and take the GRE early.  You should check periodically to verify that credentials are received.  Applications are typically reviewed once a month after the file is complete.  To ensure a timely response, apply and submit all credentials early.  Once a decision is made, you will receive immediate notification by e-mail and an official notification by mail. 

What if I did not major in speech-language pathology?
Non-majors can apply to be admitted to the 3-year master’s program.  Undergraduate prerequisites are taken during the first year of study. 

What are the prerequisites for non-majors? How do I know which prerequisites to take?
For non- majors, a minimum of ten prerequisite courses in speech-language pathology are taken during the first year.  There are four additional prerequisites beyond the speech-language pathology courses that are required for certification.  These include Statistics, Biological Science, Physical Science, and Behavioral/Social Science.  Check the undergraduate prerequisite courses to ascertain that your courses match our requirements.

Can I take prerequisites at another institution?
Yes.  Applicants may take undergraduate prerequisites at any other accredited program prior to enrollment, but before you enroll at a different institution, check to ascertain that the courses match our requirements.   

What if I’ve taken some of the prerequisites?
Once enrolled, your transcripts will be reviewed in order to match your courses with our requirements.  You must complete all prerequisites in order to graduate.

I want to transfer to Howard.  What courses will you accept? What about clinical hours?
Students may transfer 6 credits of graduate courses from another institution.  Once enrolled, your transcript will be reviewed to determine the courses. We will also review your clinical hours to determine their acceptability.

Do you admit applicants for the spring semester?
Admission to the master’s program is for fall semester only. Students may be admitted to the PhD program in either fall or spring semester.

Can I apply to the PhD program without a master’s degree in speech-language pathology?
No.  Only individuals with the master’s degree in speech-language pathology should apply.  Individuals with the AuD or master’s in audiology or different fields should not apply.

What is the process for applying for financial aid in the department?
Within the department, a limited number of graduate assistantships and grants are available on a competitive basis.  Financial aid is not offered with admission.  Qualified students are contacted by the department.  Students are encouraged to apply to other sources of financial assistance in the Graduate School, university and the wider community.

When can I register for courses?
Once you have confirmed your enrollment, you will be contacted by the department with further information.  A general advisement and registration are conducted on the day of orientation.  Students are strongly discouraged from registering prior to receiving advisement.

When will I be assigned an advisor?
Once you are enrolled and the semester has begun, you will receive an advisor.

Is orientation mandatory?
Absolutely.  You will receive crucial information for your matriculation in addition to registration.

Why is the transcript necessary for orientation?
Before determining your curriculum, the department must verify that you have the prerequisites.  In addition, the final transcript showing the conferring of your degree must be on file in the Graduate School.
