The speech-language pathology curriculum provides in-depth study of the wide range of SLP clinical practice in speech, language, swallowing, and cognitive-communication disorders across the lifespan. Our faculty integrates the best current evidence with client-centered care using innovative and practical approaches to teaching. Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty, professional speech-language pathology clinical supervisors, and gain interdisciplinary experience working with allied health professionals in a variety of community-based settings throughout the graduate program. Our graduates will be prepared to work in a variety of clinical settings with clients across the lifespan, such as in early childhood programs, public and specialty schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, residential care facilities, and private clinical practices.
