Master of Arts Speech Language Pathology
The Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology at Edinboro University was established in 1974 and since then, hundreds of our alumni have been practicing in the U.S. and around the world. This two-year full-time program prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills to evaluate and treat a wide variety of communication and swallowing disorders across the life span. A total of five clinical rotations (two on campus and three internships) enable students to develop and refine their clinical skills under the supervision of a qualified practitioner in various settings. Upon completion of our CAA accredited program, a passing score on the national examination in speech-language pathology, and successful completion of a clinical fellowship, graduates become eligible for national certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and a state license to practice in Pennsylvania from the Pennsylvania Board of Examiners in Speech, Language, and Hearing. Students in the program planning to practice in the school setting may also pursue certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
We participate in the national common application for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, CSDCAS. After you create an account with them online, follow their instructions thoroughly and make sure that all required components of your application have been submitted before the deadline of February 1. That includes GRE scores, academic transcripts to date, three letters of reference, and the application itself. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is required. We welcome applications from graduates of CSD programs, as well as any other baccalaureate program. Graduates of the latter will need to complete certain prerequisite courses, which can be completed in a fall-spring sequence.
Offers of admissions are normally made by April 1. Seats are limited. A $150 deposit must be submitted to hold a seat, and will be applied to your first semester costs. Deposits are non-refundable. Applicants who subsequently cancel their application or fail to register shall forfeit their advance deposit; there will be no full or partial refunds.
