Health and Sport Sciences
Students should be health advocates in the classroom, on the field and in the world. Focusing on health and the whole person enhances the lives of individuals, families and communities. At Adelphi, we believe physical activity benefits should be available to everyone—regardless of background, appearance, belief system or socioeconomic status.
Communication Sciences and Disorders
Providing students with a strong understanding of the connections between the scientific bases of our discipline and its clinical practices is our mission. We strive to prepare the finest professional and ethical research-based clinicians who can assess and treat children and adults with communication disorders within our scope of practice and from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
