Become a certified and licensed Speech-Language Pathologist.

A Voice for the Voiceless.

Imagine a baby born with a cleft lip. An older adult struggling with dementia or the effects of a stroke. As a 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.

Students must complete all academic courses and clinical practicum required for clinical certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Five clinical rotations enable students to develop and refine clinical skills under the supervision of a qualified practitioner.
