Mission Statement

La Salle University’s Speech-Language-Hearing Science Graduate Program provides a research-oriented, clinically-based curriculum grounded in theoretical, ethical, and clinical knowledge in speech, language, and hearing science. Students learn to think critically and communicate effectively. They are prepared to meet professional credentialing including American Speech-Language-Hearing Association certification as speech-language pathologists. Students gain knowledge and skills to evaluate, treat, and advocate for individuals with communication and swallowing disorders in a pluralistic society. Students learn to analyze and integrate research into clinical practice and value life-long learning.

Here are some features of our program:

  • Wide variety of clinical practice opportunities in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, and private practices throughout the greater Philadelphia area
  • Distinguished faculty with extensive clinical, research, and teaching experience
  • Full-time cohort program
  • The M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, Rockville, MD 20850-3289, 301.897.5700. The Council recently re-accredited the MS in speech-language pathology for a period of eight years beginning January 2008 through November 30, 2016.
