Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP)
The FIU Master of Science program in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP) prepares students to identify, assess and manage speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Graduates work with people who exhibit communication differences and disorders across their lifespan in a variety of settings, including schools, clinics, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers.
The program’s unique “bilingual emphasis” prepares graduates to work with the increasing number of bilingual individuals in need of specialized care. The program of study provides students with the theoretical and clinical education to develop the competencies needed to practice as a speech-language pathologist.
Upon completion of the master’s degree, the graduate will have met all academic and practicum requirements to apply for the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) awarded by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
Graduate Certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders
The Graduate Certificate in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students to support speech-language pathology professionals through comprehensive practical and classroom experience. Students learn about disorders and treatments, communication devices, and working with people with verbal impairments.
This certificate can lead to employment as a speech-language pathology assistant, and can only be taken as a POST-BACCALAUREATE student after completion of undergraduate studies.
