Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology

The goal is to produce highly qualified graduates who apply for graduate study in speech-language pathology or audiology.

Admission/Retention Requirements

Students qualifying for admission to the university are admissible to these programs. Retention requires majors to earn at least a grade of C in all program courses taken. Courses may be repeated, if necessary, to meet this requirement. Students with less than a 3.0 grade point average in speech-language pathology courses will enroll in clinical practicum if recommended by faculty. Failure to pass the practicum course will result in non-recommendation for graduate study in speech-language pathology study.


The speech-language pathology program prepares students for certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) upon completion of the master's degree.

The bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology is a pre-professional program that provides necessary course work and clinical experiences for graduate school admission to complete the student’s professional education. Students majoring in speech-language pathology are encouraged to declare their major as sophomores. Major courses are sequenced to prepare students for supervised clinical work. Majors also complete a 12-hour minor in consultation with their advisor.
