Master's in Speech-Language Pathology

 

Speech-language pathologists help people of all ages and backgrounds with various speech, language, swallowing, and hearing disorders to communicate more clearly and fluently. Whether a patient stutters or has a hearing impairment, a cleft palate or a developmental delay, the speech-language pathologist must be able to provide compassionate, competent care.
