The M.S./Ph.D. program is designed for students who wish to pursue both the Ph.D. degree and professional training & clinical certification in Speech-Language Pathology, obtained via the M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology.
The clinical component of the program meets the requirements for:
- ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence
- License to practice as a Speech-Language Pathologist in the state of Wisconsin
- Teacher certification in the state of Wisconsin from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
Our clinical master’s degree program in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
M.S./Ph.D. students typically take a modified sequence of the same courses as students in the M.S. program, which allows time for involvement in research from the beginning. After you have completed your master’s degree, you will transition into the doctoral program.
Interested in applying? The deadline for application submission is January 1.
