Speech-language Pathology 3+2
LVC's 3+2 Speech Language Pathology program will put you ahead of the game in a highly-competitive field. You'll graduate as a skilled clinician, and—thanks to our strong alumni network and clinical partnerships—have all the support and real-world experience you need to start building a successful and fulfilling career.
As a Speech Language Pathology student, you’ll enroll as a Communication Sciences & Disorders major. Qualified students will then enter the Speech-Language Pathology program in year three. At the completion of your fourth year, you’ll receive a B.S. in Communication Sciences & Disorders—and at the end of your fifth year, you’ll receive a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology (pending receipt of candidacy status from the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.*)
*The master’s degree (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology (residential) at Lebanon Valley College is a Candidate for Accreditation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. Candidacy is a “preaccreditation” status with the CAA, awarded to developing or emerging programs for a maximum period of 5 years.
