Admissions & Aid
Established in 1931, the Diana Rogovin Davidow Speech Language Hearing Center at Brooklyn College provides diagnostic and therapeutic speech, language, and hearing services to individuals across the lifespan, including students, staff, faculty, and residents from Brooklyn and beyond. The center serves as an experiential learning resource for students from diverse communities, including those enrolled in the B.A. program in communication sciences and disorders, the M.S. program in speech-language pathology, and the CUNY Au.D doctor of audiology program. Students engage in a variety of activities including observation, classroom laboratory activities, research, and service provision under the supervision of licensed speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
As part of the Department of Communication Arts, Sciences, and Disorders, students are prepared to be exemplary communicators, to understand the foundations of human communication, to recognize disorder, to distinguish disorder from difference, and to prevent disorder when possible. Our mission includes service to the college and community through activities that expand the horizons of our knowledge, which enable communication to succeed when it is ineffective and which ennoble human discourse.
