The Ph.D. Program in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences prepares scholars and researchers with a capacity to develop broad theoretical and conceptual frameworks to strengthen their understanding of the major issues of human communication and its disorders. We offer our students a strong and multifaceted research-based doctoral education where they will gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to continue learning and growing throughout their professional lives.

Faculty members from CUNY’s senior colleges and the Graduate Center conduct research on varied aspects of speech, language, and hearing processes and disorders. One common theme across projects and laboratories is bilingualism and cross-linguistic studies across the lifespan in typical and clinical populations.

Since its inception in 1965, the program has achieved a reputation for excellence in doctoral program, and has graduated many individuals who have assumed positions of leadership and have contributed significantly to the advancement of knowledge in the processes and disorders of human communication.
