Full-time students complete the program in two years. Students stay with the same group and take all classes together—building bonds and teamwork skills.
MSLP graduate students come into the program with undergraduate degrees from an array of disciplines, including psychology, elementary education, early childhood education, kinesiology, liberal arts, health sciences and human services.
Students participate in clinical experiences in a variety of locations, from public schools to hospitals to rehab facilities. In their second year, they complete 20–24 weeks of full-time internships, one in a child-oriented setting and one in an adult-oriented setting.
Graduates will be prepared for entry into independent professional practice and will be eligible for American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certification and other relevant local credentials.
