The course sequence takes the student from introductory level concepts in the first semester through intermediate and advanced concepts and clinical applications in the following semesters.
The Master of Science degree in Speech Language Pathology at Idaho State University is the only accredited program in the state of Idaho. Dedicated to enriching the lives of those with communication needs, the program has a strong clinical focus which provides graduating students with the tools to work in educational, medical, or other clinical settings with children and/or adults with communicative needs.
Sign Language Interpreting
The Associate of Science in Sign Language Studies and Bachelor of Science in Educational Interpreting Degrees offered at ISU were developed to advance awareness and meet the needs of deaf and hard of hearing students in educational settings. Increased educational and certification requirements for educational interpreters have created a demand for colleges and universities to offer such diplomas. Upon successful completion of the Sign Language Studies (SLS) program graduates are awarded an Associate of Science Degree and are eligible to apply for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Educational Interpreting (EdInterp). Both of these programs are offered concurrently at the Pocatello and Meridian campuses
Idaho State University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
