Masters in Speech-Language Pathology: Prospective Student Information Session & Program Tour
Building tours and information sessions happening this fall!
The M.S. program has two tracks. The Speech-Language Pathology track is a two-year professional program designed to prepare students for clinical work. It is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association. At the master’s level, supervised diagnostic and therapy experiences with children and adults are provided in a variety of on- and off-campus clinical settings. This program meets the academic and clinical-practicum requirements for clinical certification set by the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association (ASHA). Opportunities are also available for pursing a nonclinical program at the master’s level.
