Training for Research and Academic Careers in Communication Sciences (TRACCS)

Are you interested in psychology, medicine, physics, linguistics, physiology, engineering, biology, sociology, anthropology, or other similar fields? 
Communication sciences and disorders is a highly multidisciplinary field that touches upon all these areas.

Have you ever considered pursuing a career in research?
Communication sciences and disorders is undergoing a shortage of Ph.D. students and career researchers studying normal and disordered speech, voice, language, swallowing, and hearing.

The most positive aspect was walking away from this program with a clearer vision for my life. I came here extremely confused and am walking away more wiser and disciplined in research.

TRACCS is a 6-week intensive research program for minorities that is run by faculty in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University for the purpose of increasing the number and diversity of students in pursuit of academic careers in the field of communication sciences and disorders. Students from under-represented groups (African American, Latino, American Indian and Asian American) are especially encouraged to apply. It will take place May 26 – July 3rd 2014.

Students working in labTRACCS is funded by the Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences at Indiana University, Bloomington.
