» Communication Sciences and Disorders Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD), an Extended Education program, is offered through Chapman University's Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences. This is an accelerated 10-month program, designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree and need to complete the pre-requisites (leveling courses) necessary to apply for a masters degree program in CSD at Chapman University or another institution. This Post-Baccalaureate CSD program is essential for students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in Speech Language Pathology, Communication Disorders, or similar.

Application for the Post-Bacc CSD spring 2023 cohort opens July 29th, 2022. The application deadline is November 30, 2022 11:59pm PST. Applications submitted after this date will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
