Speech Language Pathology

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools and College

The graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology is currently in the process of achieving CAA (Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology) candidacy status. Students will not be enrolled in this program until this status is achieved. 

The graduate program in speech-language pathology is designed to develop students into empathetic and reflective practitioners who use evidenced-based practice to provide meaningful intervention to clients. The program is anticipated to open in Fall 2015, pending the granting of CAA candidacy status. A competency-based curriculum, capped with two eight-week externships (one pediatric and one adult) assists in the development of soon-to-be professionals.

The curriculum is offered on a full-time basis through the day program and typically requires two full years (including the summer between those academic years) to complete. The program incorporates clinical competencies and academic knowledge, and allows students the opportunity to choose from several electives to tailor their program to meet their career goals. Additionally, students are given the opportunity to participate in research under the guidance of faculty. 

Students who complete the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology are prepared for entry into this profession as clinical fellows and may choose to work in settings such as schools, hospitals, private practice or long-term care facilities.
