Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.S. - Speech-Language Pathology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The graduate curriculum in speech-language pathology offers advanced course work in the prevention, identification, evaluation and treatment of speech, language and hearing disorders in both children and adults, meeting both the academic and clinical requirements of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the licensure requirements of the state of Wisconsin.

A bilingual English-Spanish specialization (BIES) is offered through the master’s degree program. This program prepares speech-language pathologists who are proficient in Spanish to evaluate and treat communication disorders in individuals who speak Spanish or are bilingual (Spanish-English). Candidates for the BIES specialization must be accepted to the master of science program in speech-language pathology. Candidates also must complete the department application to the BIES specialization and meet language proficiency requirements established by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Graduate-level academic course work for the BIES specialization may fulfill elective requirements for the master of science degree in speech-language pathology. Clinical practicum hours through the BIES specialization will apply toward a master of science degree, ASHA certification and DPI licensure requirements. All course work is based on guidelines suggested by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association for speech-language pathologists providing bilingual assessment and intervention.
