Full Program Description

Northeastern University’s Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) MS Program prepares future speech-language pathologists to provide quality clinical services to communicatively- and/or swallow- impaired individuals, from infant through geriatric ages. Upon graduation, students obtain employment in a variety of settings that reflect the diverse populations served by speech-language pathologists. Some are self-employed in private practices that provide speech, language and hearing services. Others function as members of interdisciplinary teams in healthcare or educational settings, or in research laboratories.

Our academic program and on-campus Speech-Language and Hearing Center are fully accredited by the council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Over the course of their SLP Graduate Program, students accumulate the basic science, academic course work, and student clinical experiences necessary for national certification (ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence, CCC). Following graduation, students are ready to complete their Clinical Fellowship Year. Graduates are also eligible for state educator licensure. Our program’s 2013 pass rate on the National SLP Praxis Exam was 97%
