Degree and certificate programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepare students to be future leaders in speech-language pathology, audiology, and related areas.

Nationally known faculty lead research efforts that contribute to the knowledge base of the discipline and provide state, regional, and national clinical leadership. Our faculty commit to evidence-based, client-centered, outcomes-focused training for our students. Permanent faculty members lead or supervise most courses and clinical experiences.

Our Speech and Hearing Clinic is the largest academically associated clinic at UGA and has been providing outstanding services to the community since 1953.
