Careers in Communication Disorders

The primary careers in the field of communication disorders are speech-language pathology and audiology. Speech-language pathologists and audiologists work as clinicians, researchers, instructors, and clinical supervisors. They work in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, schools, research laboratories, industry, private practice, government agencies, the armed forces, and post-secondary education. There is a strong demand for speech-language and hearing services in metropolitan and rural settings across the country. Salaries are dependent upon the professional setting, the number of months employed each year (9 months in school systems vs. 12 months in most other settings), and the particular position assumed.

If you choose not to go on to graduate school in speech-language pathology or audiology, then here many alternative education- and health-related careers, including healthcare administration, special education, classroom teacher, counselor, social worker, case manager, and speech language pathology assistant. A bachelor’s degree in communication sciences and disorders provides an excellent foundation for these fields.
