Division of Communication Disorders

Perform Communication Disorders Research as a Professor

If you are interested in being a professor and conducting communication disorders research, you can receive excellent research preparation up to the master's degree level here and then go on to quality Ph.D. programs elsewhere. You will follow an individually-designed course of study in your area of specialization, under the guidance of a professor mentor. You will participate in many research projects, conduct your own independent research, and assist in teaching over the 4-5 years of doctoral study. Typically, students are funded through research, teaching, or clinical supervision duties during their doctoral study. Ph.D.s work mainly in universities, but also in research hospitals, administration, and private practice. Typically, speech-language pathologists work for 1-5 years to gain clinical experience before going on for a Ph.D.
