Goals of the Five-Year Program
The Five-Year Communication Sciences and Disorders Program at La Salle University is designed to provide an accredited program in which students are prepared to function as qualified speech-language pathologists. The program provides theoretical and clinical experiences that prepare students for leadership roles to meet the health, educational, and social needs of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders in the contexts of families, communities, and society. The Program is designed to equip students to meet requirements for certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, for licensure by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and as a foundation for doctoral study. Graduates will earn both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science degree.
