Speech Pathology

Speech Pathology Requirements

Specialists in communication sciences and disorders include audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language and hearing scientist, engage in a rewarding profession that the need for professionals is expected to grow over the coming decade. Work settings include schools, hospitals, nursing homes, businesses, private practice, universities, research laboratories, corporations, industry and government agencies. Clients include infants, children, adolescents, adults and older people ̶ in other words, people of all ages.

Opportunities in research and higher education are expected to increase as baby boomers currently in these positions retire. Clinical opportunities will be even greater for those with bilingual and multicultural expertise.

The focus here is on speech pathology, but programs in this area are diverse and prospective students should discuss other options with their health care advisor.
