Beyond the Classroom


Undergraduate students participate in internship experiences including:

  • The Autism Internship, in which students work with children with autism at area public schools.
  • Internships at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, where students observe voice evaluations, laryngeal surgeries, and voice treatment. 

Clinical Practicum

Graduate students earn clinical hours in clinical practicum placements. They have the opportunity to interview for placements in area public schools, private practices, collaboratives, home health agencies and hospitals.

The Speech-Language-Literacy Center 

The department houses a Speech-Language-Literacy Center where our students engage in supervised clinical practice. The Center has offered services to BSU and our surrounding communities since its inception in 1982.

Operation Smile

BSU’s official campus chapter helps support and raise funds for this international charity that provides surgeries for youth in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities.

Study Abroad

BSU has academic partnerships with numerous universities around the world. Undergraduate CSD students have the opportunity to study abroad during the fall, spring, winter intersession and summer semesters. Our faculty members collaborate with other departments to lead study abroad tours in countries of interest; previous global experiences have focused on verbal and nonverbal communication patterns and sociocultural aspects of communication in Arabic culture, among other topics.
