Program Description:

Speech-language pathology is a rapidly growing field that helps people of all ages, particularly the emerging bilingual population, develop an essential skill — communication. Practitioners in the field deal with a wide variety of conditions, from childhood language delays and disorders, to cognitive communication impairment, stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury and much more.

Designed for ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists, Kean's SLPD program gives you the advanced training you need to take on leadership roles in clinical settings and higher education to more fully impact the lives of others.

One of only eight programs in the nation and the only one in the tristate area, our SLPD program builds on your knowledge, clinical experience and problem-solving skills through coursework and applications that incorporate current research, ethical decision-making and models of best practice.

Kean's world-class, SLPD-specific faculty are proven leaders in their fields. Their expertise coupled with supportive interprofessional, culturally competent and evidence-based education and practice programs will give you the tools and confidence you need to take your career where you want it to go.
