Academic Programs

The Department of Communication Disorders (CMDS) at Auburn University has been accredited since 1965, making it one of the oldest training programs accredited in the U.S. We offer the highest quality undergraduate preparation for students aspiring to graduate programs in speech language pathology or audiology. Our CMDS graduate programs have also been distinguished as the highest ranked training programs in the State of Alabama (U.S. News & World Report) and they have achieved near 100% employment for our graduates over the past three years (see Outcome Measures).
