Department Mission

The mission of the department is to provide students with an understanding of communication processes in a culturally diverse society. The Department of Communication Sciences at California State University, Fullerton provides its majors with an understanding of speech, language, and hearing sciences and disorders, and also of the high quality services that are delivered by professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology.

Our faculty and staff aspire to combine excellence in teaching, research, and clinical practice for students in and out of the classroom. In the on-campus Speech and Hearing Clinic and off-campus medical, community, and educational training sites, we strive to provide graduates of our program with the essential knowledge and skills to become professional practitioners in speech-language pathology who are capable of serving in clinics, schools, community centers, hospitals, and private practice. We also strive to prepare our graduates to become advocates for people with communication disabilities.

Positioned within a comprehensive, regional university with a global outlook in Southern California, our faculty expertise and diversity provide a distinctive opportunity for exploring, understanding, and developing an appreciation for normal and disordered human communication across the life span and across culturally/linguistically diverse populations. In our university, where learning is preeminent, graduates represent our aspirations to combine the best of current theory with contemporary clinical practices across the broad areas within our profession.
