Description of Program
The PreSLP program provides post-baccalaureate students who do not have the required background in communication sciences and disorders with the prerequisite courses in basic human communication sciences needed to apply to a master's degree program in speech-language pathology.
This unique program offers the recommended 10 to 11 required courses online, affording students the choice of a flexible schedule to pursue the needed prerequisites for a master's program in speech-language pathology.
Upon completing the PreSLP program, students demonstrate knowledge of basic human communication and swallowing processes, including their biological, neurological, acoustic, psychological, developmental, linguistic, and cultural bases.
Students are strongly encouraged to take all PreSLP courses unless their records indicate that they have taken equivalent courses and earned a B or higher in those courses. By completing the PreSLP program, students are prepared to apply to a graduate program in speech-language pathology. However, entrance into the PreSLP program does not guarantee acceptance into La Salle's graduate Speech-Language-Hearing Science Program.
The following courses are the recommended PreSLP courses and will be offered online. Note that WB indicates online and P WB courses are limited to students enrolled in the PreSLP program:
