Student working with a member of the CSS team in the Hearing Aid ShopExpand your communication skills

The Communication Studies and Services Department (CSS) provides a broad range of support and opportunity for deaf and hard-of-hearing students who want to expand communication skills that will serve them—both during and after college—in educational, professional, community, and other settings.

Whether you seek audiology, speech-language, or cochlear implant services, you can count on CSS faculty and staff to work with you to determine your needs and provide assistance.

All students, whether they choose to use Spoken English or ASL, can benefit from a Communication Studies curriculum aimed at helping students develop a set of communication skills that will add to their ability to connect in their personal and professional lives.
