Description The School provides both professional and research training in communication sciences and disorders at the graduate level through its M.Sc. (Applied), M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees. We were the first department in Canada to provide both clinical and research degrees. Our M.Sc.A. program aims to educate the next generation of well-prepared and innovative speech-language pathology professionals by providing enriched classroom training, clinical laboratory activities that enhance the transition from theory to practice, and outstanding clinical practicum experiences. Our research degrees are designed to develop leading researchers and scholars, who will go on to train future investigators in the field of communication sciences and disorders and who, through their research, will advance our understanding of the processes of human communication and its breakdown. Interdisciplinary interactions are at the core of our research training approach, which includes preparation to conduct both fundamental and clinically applied investigations. Our professors have collaborative ties with many departments and institutes of McGill (psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, otolaryngology, biomedical engineering, Montreal Neurological Institute) and other Montreal universities and maintain national and international collaborations. Students can access this rich collaborative network via the McGill Centre for Research on Language, Mind and Brain, a world-class interdisciplinary research centre established and directed by the School. The multilingual context in which we reside provides a unique environment for language research.
