Here’s the path you’ll take to become a licensed speech-language pathologist. You’ll start in the fall and will most likely complete all your degree requirements by July of your second year. During your two years at Edinboro, you’ll complete five clinical rotations - two on campus at the state-of-the-art Governor George Leader Speech and Hearing Center, and three internships in adult and pediatric health care settings. During your clinical experiences, you will refine your clinical skills under the supervision of a qualified practitioner and grow as a professional. To practice as a speech-language pathologist you must:
Complete your graduate degree and one clinical fellowship.
Earn a passing score on the national examination in speech-language pathology.
Sit for a state licensure examination, such as the Pennsylvania Board of Examiners in Speech, Language and Hearing.
