Marywood’s five-year program consists of two distinct phases: the Pre-Professional Phase (years 1-3) and the Professional Phase (years 4-5).
During this pre-professional phase of the program, students take classes to meet the liberal arts core requirements, as well as complete courses in basic human communication processes and some speech-language disorders, to prepare them for application and admittance to the Professional Phase of the program.
The Professional phase of the program concentrates on course work in various communication disorders across the life span and provides clinical practicum experiences where students learn to apply knowledge and skills to children and adults who have various speech-language-swallowing disorders. An option to pursue teacher certification is also offered.
