Welcome to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders

On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, I welcome you to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD). UMD's Communication Sciences and Disorders undergraduate and graduate degree programs provide specialized coursework and clinical experiences which prepares students to work with speech-language and hearing disabled children and adults in a variety of settings, including the public schools, hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers and private practice.

The CSD program is well recognized for the close faculty-student interaction and mentoring relationships. Faculty serve as mentors for students, culminating in collaborative research projects and clinical service internships and externships. Please do not hesitate to contact us and ask us questions, and come back to visit us again.
