The Division of Speech-Language Pathology in the School of Health and Practice offers a two-year, full-time master of science degree in speech-language pathology. Our medically oriented program is specifically designed to prepare graduates to pursue a career in a health care setting; at the same time, the curriculum prepares graduates for employment in all professional settings of the field. It has a commitment to evidenced-based and ethical practice in the delivery of speech-language and swallowing services. The SLP program is a full-time intensive program that spans five semesters beginning in mid-August. A sixth semester is optional should a student need additional clinical time.
The Specialization Track in Pediatric Dysphagia and Early Intervention will allow SLP students to enroll in a comprehensive curriculum focused on the evaluation and treatment of feeding/swallowing and complex communication disorders within the framework of best practices in early intervention for medically complex young children.
Upon graduation in two years, students who complete this track will receive an M.S. in SLP with a concentration in the two areas. This unique opportunity, already building on a medically oriented SLP program, will give students an advanced and marketable degree tailored to their field.
