Prepare to become a speech-language pathologist.
The Master of Science (MS) in communication disorders degree program at ASU is based on a research-to-practice philosophy and is designed to prepare speech-language pathologists for autonomous clinical practice. The training model at ASU stresses the integration of academic classroom learning and practicum experience across a broad spectrum of clinical specialties and practice environments. We believe that our graduate curriculum provides a strong foundation in the scientific knowledge base and a wide range of clinical field experiences that will prepare our graduates with essential tools for evidence-based clinical practice. The successful graduate will have the diagnostic and rehabilitative skills that fulfill the current Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology specified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The ASU graduate curriculum also is designed to enable MS degree students to meet current standards required for ASHA certification in Speech-Language Pathology. Our program has multiple and varied opportunities for students who are admitted to our program. Students have the option to tailor their training to increase their competencies in early intervention practice, school service delivery, medical settings, and working in a multicultural/multilingual setting.
