The Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology at DePaul University is designed to provide students with an in-depth academic and clinical course of study to prepare students for a career in the dynamic and growing field of speech-language pathology. Students participate in collaborative, experiential and integrative learning opportunities to develop skills for the highest standards of scope of practice in speech-language pathology. Our program embraces diversity, advocacy and global awareness.

This master level degree is the entry-level credential required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to prepare students for a professional role as a speech-language pathologist. Students will learn to work with both children and adults across the full range of communication disorders. The program is designed to deliver high quality clinical service to work in all primary employment settings, including schools, hospitals, clinics, and private practices; and including all aspects of communication and swallowing: fluency, language, cognition, voice, speech sound production, augmentative/alternative communication and hearing.
