The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of South Carolina invites applicants for its PhD program in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The PhD degree prepares professionals for academic careers, and therefore its emphasis is on research and the scholarly study of the science of human communication and its disorders. Doctoral students, under the direction of a mentor, regularly participate in laboratory activities and pursue a program of scholarly research leading to publication in scientific journals. Faculty in the Department conduct research in the areas of Phonology, Syntax, Psycholinguistics, Neurolinguistics, Aphasia, Literacy, Speech & Hearing Science, Speech-Motor Control, Parkinson’s Disease, Child Language Development, Orthographic Learning, Autism and Fragile-X syndrome, among others.

Students may enter the doctoral program following the bachelor or master degree, depending on their professional goals and interest in clinical certification. Applications are invited from students with majors in a variety of disciplines, including (but not limited to), audiology, engineering, linguistics, psychology, physics, physiology, and speech-language pathology.

The Department is currently offering to fund two applicants to start in the Fall term of 2018, i.e. this August. Funding consists of a graduate assistantship in the lab of the student’s faculty mentor. This assistantship runs for three calendar years and pays $33,000 per year. Student tuition will be reduced to the in-state level, but the remaining tuition and fees will be taken out of the assistantship.
