Enrollment in undergraduate communication sciences and disorders programs is outpacing enrollment in graduate CSD programs, according to data from ASHA’s Communication Sciences and Disorders Education Survey. For AuD programs, the predominant issue limiting enrollment is “insufficient student funding,” the survey finds. For master’s speech-language pathology programs, the key issues are “insufficient clinical placements,” “insufficient student funding” and “competing demands on faculty time.”
From 2010–2011 to 2012–2013, the number of undergraduate students with CSD majors increased by 28.6 percent.
From 2010–2011 to 2011–2012, the number of undergraduate CSD degrees granted increased by 10.1 percent, and then nearly leveled out for 2012–2013.
From 2010–2011 to 2012–2013, the number of first-year AuD students increased by 8.8 percent; the number of first-year master’s SLP students increased by 5.6 percent.
Data are from 2011, 2012 and 2013 CSD Education Surveys. The number of institutions submitting data varies from year to year. The data have been extrapolated to 100 percent of existing programs.
