POPULARITY

Communication sciences and disorders is the 80th most popular degree in America, with 4,956 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #81 Graphic Design, and narrowly lost to #79 Agricultural Business and Management.

The degree is offered at a total of 120 colleges across the nation, and is the 137th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 4% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that approximately three fourths of colleges offering communication sciences and disorders are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most communication sciences and disorders graduates, largely led by California State University-Fullerton, while it’s the Mountain West Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California State University-Fullerton and California State University-Los Angeles.

All that being said, no individual school produces more communication sciences and disorders graduates than Chapman University, which graduated 344 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study communication sciences and disorders). More students studied communication sciences and disorders as a percentage of total students at Carlos Albizu University-San Juan than any other college.
