About

The Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Worcester State University aims to facilitate an understanding of normal human communication processes and communication disorders. These disorders can develop in children or occur later in life.

Overview

The Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Worcester State University states that communication is defined as the sharing of needs, experiences, ideas, thoughts, and feelings with other people through modalities such as talking, listening, writing, reading, and nonverbal means. 

Undergraduate students in Communication Sciences and Disorders begin by learning the scientific foundations of the normal processes of communication. This scientific basis is followed by an introduction to the disorders that can occur in speech, language, and hearing in children and adults.
