Help others communicate with the world.

Imagine a baby born with a cleft lip. An older adult struggling with dementia or the effects of a stroke. As a certified and licensed speech-language pathologist, you can help make a difference in their lives.

Our faculty engages students in the acquisition and application of knowledge and encourages them to become thoughtful and insightful decision-makers. Students work closely with faculty and supervisors as they learn to make informed professional judgments and to use contemporary approaches to diagnosis and remediation of communicative, cognitive and/or swallowing disorders.

Our program’s mission is simple:
To enhance the intellectual, cultural, social and ethical development of our graduate students. We make that happen by emphasizing complete integration of theory, research and practice. By building these skills, our graduates are able to serve diverse communities and individuals in a wide variety of settings.

The Speech-Language Pathology program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) and approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
