Future Students

Welcome to the Master of Science Program in Speech-Language Pathology. Our mission is to train excellent clinician-scholars who will work to maximize life participation for all people with communication and swallowing disorders. To achieve that mission, we use an educational framework focused on self-directed learning, problem-based learning, and small-group learning. Our grads are well prepared to think on their feet and apply their knowledge to real-life clinical settings. They are self-directed and have strong time-management skills, thrive working alone and in teams, and enjoy the challenge of finding the “answer” through research.
