STUDENT FEEDBACK
“Most of my classes are filled with peers from across the nation. It is wonderful to be able to ask questions of people who come from such diverse backgrounds.” — Utah student “This online program has effectively allowed me to prepare for a new career as a speech pathologist. The professors have been outstanding and the online coursework has provided a rich, informative learning experience. The web-based format was easy to learn and is very convenient to use.” — Nevada student “I have been accepted into a graduate program at St. Cloud State University. This would not have been possible without USU’s Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education post-bachelor’s program.” — Minnesota student “After an unexpected event in my life, I needed to go back to school. Most schools did not have the major I wanted or evening courses I could take after work. With this program, I was able to work, take care of my three children, then go online and complete coursework after everyone was sleeping. — Washington student

COMMUNICATIVE DISORDERS & DEAF EDUCATION (COMD-DE)

To meet this need, the Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education Department at Utah State University offers two different online bachelor’s degree programs, one for a first bachelor’s degree and one for a second bachelor’s degree.

In 2008 COMD-DE faculty received Utah State’s annual department award for outstanding teaching as well as a major state award for exemplary use of technology in its online program.
