The purpose of the Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders Program (B.S. in CSDS) is to foster the knowledge and skills our students need for success in graduate programs and/or careers related to communication sciences and disorders by providing high-quality, engaging, and learner-centered instruction. We support the institutional mission of Georgia Southern University to prepare individuals to think, lead and serve. We also support the mission of the Waters College of Health Professions to prepare future health professionals through academic excellence and interdisciplinary collaboration, while advancing knowledge through scholarship and serving culturally diverse communities. We manifest our alignment with these missions by preparing students to demonstrate and apply knowledge of: communication and swallowing development across the lifespan; communication and swallowing disorders; anatomical and physiological foundations of communication and swallowing; cultural and linguistic diversity; and the processes of team work and evidence-informed decision making.
