Speech-language pathologists are healthcare specialists dedicated to the evaluation, treatment, and research of human communication and related disorders. They can work in a variety of settings including schools, clinics, hospitals and rehabilitation centers.
FIU’s accredited Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP) degree program at the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences prepares students to identify, assess and manage speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing disorders, as well as develop treatments of care for patients who exhibit communication differences and disorders across their lifespan.
This full-time, 6-semester program (including summers), emphasizes a bilingual curriculum focused on a wide range of related disorder diagnoses and treatments, clinical experience and master’s level project work. Four (4) semesters are spent in clinical rotations to provide you with the real-world skills you’ll need to succeed in this high-demand profession.
Students admitted annually
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the Praxis® Examination, which they must pass to apply for a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in speech-language pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
