Considering a Career in Speech-Language Pathology?
The Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology Program (MS SLP) at Jacksonville University is NOW AVAILABLE for those students planning careers as speech-language pathologists. We are developing professionals who are knowledgeable and skilled in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of speech, voice, swallowing, language, and cognitive disorders with emphasis on the practice of medical speech-language pathology. Under the direction of experienced faculty, students will gain the skills needed to assess and treat individuals with diverse needs.
Speech-language pathologists can work in schools, hospitals and private health offices and diagnose, treat and prevent a variety of communication, speech, and language disorders.
Students who hold a bachelor’s degree in a field that is not in CSD, speech-language pathology, or the equivalent, must complete pre-requisite courses before they begin graduate work in speech-language pathology regardless of the institution they attend for graduate school.
Jacksonville University offer the undergraduate pre-requisite courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). These pre-requisite courses are needed for students to meet the general course requirements prior to application to a MS SLP program. Please click here
