Build your foundation for an impactful career

Communication defines how we interact with one another. But for some, the ability to communicate might not come easily — or at all. As many as 10% of Americans could have speech, language, and/or hearing disorders — which may result in a staggering economic impact of $186 billion each year.*

You can be a life-changing positive force for those with communication disorders. Earn your 100% online Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Maryville University, and you can help people develop, retain, or recover their connection to those around them through communication.

Our professional certificate in communication sciences and disorders program is designed to serve as a bridge for students who already have a bachelor’s degree and would like to work toward a career in speech-language pathology or audiology. This program gives you the opportunity to build the skills to pursue a master’s degree in speech-language pathology or a clinical doctorate degree in audiology. Develop your foundation in this specialized field and then pursue your master’s degree or clinical doctorate to unlock more career opportunities.
