Speech-Language Pathologists identify, assess, and provide treatment for communication and swallowing functions and their disorders. These services are provided to individuals across the entire age span from birth through adulthood; from diverse language, ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds; and
who may have multiple disabilities.
The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Speech-Language Pathology provides an academic and clinical foundation for professionals providing services to children and adults with communication impairments, and qualifies graduates for certification and licensure in the profession of speech-language pathology.
Graduates of the M.A. program meet all requirements of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).
The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education accredits the M.A. Programs in Speech-Language Pathology.
