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 effectively. Whether a patient suffers from a voice disorder, aphasia, dementia, dysphagia, has a hearing impairment, a cleft palate or a developmental delay, the speech-language pathologist must be able to provide compassionate, competent care with cultural sensitivity.

With our rigorous academic curriculum and focus on experiential learning, the Speech-Language Pathology program at the School of Health Sciences prepares you to become highly skilled and knowledgeable health care providers with the ability to work in a variety of settings such as schools, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and private practice, as well as adept researchers and academics.
