The articles focus on how higher education might increase
the number of PhD graduates from communication sciences and disorders (CSD)
programs, highlighting responses from interviews with PhD Program Coordinators.
Authors describe a survey designed to determine if undergraduate students are
participating in known opportunities for research and if such undergraduate
research experience is related to interest in pursuing a master’s thesis or
PhD. Finally, authors describe an interdisciplinary teaching and outreach
initiative in which diverse non-communication sciences and disorders
undergraduate students were immersed in the field of CSD due to their
collective interest in music.
