Graduate Degrees

We offer you several graduate degrees, and students are encouraged to talk to faculty members, or an advisor, about any program in which they are interested.  

Master's in Communicative Disorders and Sciences, M.A.

The Master of Arts in Speech Language Pathology is appropriate for students interested in expanding their academic and clinical knowledge of the field. Our students engage with patients through clinical experience, and contribute to a body of knowledge in communication sciences.      

Doctor of Audiology, Au.D.

We offer the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.), a professional degree for an audiologist. Our program is fully accredited by the ASHA Council on Academic Accreditation, and prepares audiologists for a career as independent practitioners skilled in providing diagnostic, rehabilitative, and other hearing services through diverse clinical experience.

Joint Au.D. and M.B.A.

Applicants must also apply and be accepted separately to the University at Buffalo's M.B.A. program

Doctor of Philosophy in Communicative Disorders and Sciences, Ph.D.

At UB, you can also engage in advanced coursework and research leading to the Ph.D. in Speech Pathology. This path is most appropriate for students preparing for a career as a teacher, researcher, or scholar. Unlike the Au.D., this program may or may not include a clinical component.
