Communication Sciences and Disorders
At Marywood, we are focused on preparing you for a career as a speech-language pathologist.
Certification in this field requires a Master’s degree, so our program prepares you to become a certified practitioner by earning both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in five years. A Bachelor’s degree-only option is available for those pursuing careers in audiology that do not require certification. An option to pursue teacher certification is also offered.
Accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the program provides a challenging academic curriculum to prepare students, from a family-centered perspective, for professional careers serving children and adults with communication disorders.
The active, hands-on program offers extensive clinical practicum experiences, as students work with patients in our on-campus clinic, in outside professional settings, and through numerous community outreach efforts.
