Communication Disorders and Sciences (M.A., M.S.)

The CDS program is committed to the goal of preparing students to become speech-language pathologists who can work successfully with individuals of all ages who are challenged by communication disorders and who represent diverse cultural, linguistic, social, and economic backgrounds. The ability to apply empirical evidence, logic, and a scientific perspective to the process of enhancing communication skills in meaningful and ecologically valid contexts is emphasized throughout the program. Graduates assume positions in direct service, leadership, and research in educational, clinical, and consultation settings.

Special Education (M.S., M.Ed., or M.A.)

The faculty and staff in the Special Education major at the UO College of Education are committed to making a difference for people with disabilities and their families by increasing their success in schools, workplaces, and community settings. The master's degree program in special education (SPED) emphasizes knowledge of learners who are identified with learning disabilities, behavior disorders, autism, or severe disabilities. Graduate studies in special education build capacity through personnel preparation, research, outreach, and dissemination. These efforts are focused on systemic approaches to preventing the incidence and prevalence of disabilities as well as to designing and delivering evidence-based services for students with disabilities and their families.
