Chair's Welcome

Welcome to COMD at the University of South Carolina! COMD offers the opportunity to learn and develop clinical and investigative skills in one of the top 25 graduate speech-language pathology programs in the US. USC has established a philosophy of students learning from exceptional master clinicians and world class researchers. At COMD, you will find teachers who are committed to developing outstanding professionals to lead in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of communication disorders, and to expand our understanding of typical communication and the factors that interfere with it. You will have the opportunity to develop your clinic skills in a state of the art clinic space, the Montgomery Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic  on the beautiful campus of University of South Carolina.

If you want an education that will challenge you and develop you to your full potential, we welcome you. We hope that you enjoy reading about us at this site and look forward to meeting you in person.
