Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology
The ability to communicate is at the root of our humanity. The post-baccalaureate Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from LVC will let you help children and adults overcome a host of communication challenges.
Classes and clinical experiences will give you the tools to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat children and adults with speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders.
Next start date: August 28, 2023
Learn More About the Program
LVC’s MSLP program is pre-accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA). Through coursework and clinical experiences, you’ll gain the skills to help individuals with autism, Alzheimer’s disease, swallowing disorders, and brain injuries build—or rebuild—the ability to communicate. You’ll cover caseload management, autism, several disorders, and more. Take 15-week fall and spring courses and seven-week summer courses.
Experience That Speaks Volumes
You’ll complete two off-campus internships: One at an educational setting and another in a healthcare setting. You’ll work with ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists in both settings as you develop vital clinical skills.
Our on-campus Center for Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders provides free treatment for children and adults—and invaluable experience for graduate students, who evaluate and treat patients while under the supervision of an ASHA-certified audiologist and speech-language pathologists. You’ll design treatment plans, use diagnostic tools, and work directly with clients.
Demand is soaring for speech-language pathologists, who are being called to serve more patients across every age group. More than 15,000 job openings are expected in the field every year through 2030. Our active alumni network and faculty will connect you with opportunities in an array of settings.
Are you looking to gain experience while receiving a 25% tuition reduction during your first graduate year? If so, consider applying to the M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Fellowship program. Fellows are paired with an LVC mentor who guides the student through the required 10 hours per week of course/lab assistance, teaching, or research. The program director, fellow, and mentor develop a plan that meets the needs and career aspirations of the student. No one student follows the same path! If interested in being considered for the Fall Speech-Language Pathology fellowship program, submit an application. Applications will be reviewed as received. Decisions will be communicated by August 15 for a Fall enrollment start. Interested students can apply for the fellowship as part of the program application process.
