Brescia University now offers Undergraduate Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders Online

Brescia University is excited to announce an online option for their Bachelor’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders, or CSD, degree starting fall of 2024. Students will be able to complete their degree completely online, and complete practicums in their area. This program complements the University’s online Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, or SLP, program.

Students can transfer a maximum of 67 credits from a community college and a maximum of 81 from a four-year college or university.
