Experiential learning is core to our curriculum. Study and training in a full range of evaluation and remediation techniques are integral parts of the curriculum in order to learn how to translate theory into practice. Additional areas of study within the CSD Department are in the area of bilingual speech language pathology and family-focused treatment.
Closely allied to the speech language pathology curriculum are the fields of speech science, neurolinguistics, and normal child speech and language acquisition.
All SLP Master's students seeking certification take a set of required courses that ensure competencies in a wide variety of professional areas, as required for the current Council for Clinical Certification in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology standards for certification. A total of 57-60 credit hours over five semesters is required for the completion of the M.A. Additional hours may be required by the program in order to meet ASHA guidelines.
Our Master of Arts program is accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearnig Association
