Communication Sciences & Disorders

Those who study communication and swallowing disorders are focused on people of all ages who demonstrate difficulty developing effective and appropriate communication and swallowing skills or who have lost their ability to communicate and/or swallow because of strokes or traumatic brain injury or other physical problems. Earning a degree in speech-language pathology from The University of Tulsa allows you to take the first step toward reaching your goals.
