Speech-Language Pathology Post-Baccalaureate Program


The post-baccalaureate program in communication sciences and disorders provides in-depth study of normal speech, language and hearing processes, and a background orientation to disorders of communication. The purpose of this non-degree granting program is to allow students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in another field of study to prepare for application to a graduate program in audiology or speech-language pathology.

The post-baccalaureate sequence of courses include 27 semester hours of coursework that fulfill prerequisite requirements for application to Pacific University’s Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology and those required by many other graduate programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.

The entire speech-language pathology post-baccalaureate course sequence may be completed on-line or through registration in on-campus coursework.

Prospective and current students should note that admission to graduate programs in audiology and speech-language pathology is highly competitive. We offer advising and support to students and both prospective and current students are strongly encouraged to contact individual graduate programs to verify needed pre-requisites and determine the extent to which they are likely to be a competitive applicant for that graduate program. Successful completion of the coursework offered through this post-baccalaureate program does not guarantee successful admission to graduate programs at Pacific University or any other graduate program nationally or internationally.
