M.A. - Speech Pathology and Audiology;
The Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology offers two graduate degree programs: one leading to the Master of Arts Degree (emphasis in speech-language pathology) and one leading to the Doctor of Audiology Degree (Au.D.). Both programs are fully accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and are designed to provide academic and practicum experiences basic to the development of clinical competence in the evaluation, diagnosis, and alleviation of language, speech, and hearing disorders. Those who wish to study speech-language pathology must apply for admission to the master's degree program. Those who wish to emphasize audiology must apply for admission to the Au.D. program. In either case, students are expected to complete the academic and practicum requirements for the ASHA's Certificate of Clinical Competence.
