Program Overview

Competent, compassionate speech-language pathologists are in high demand to work with patients with communication and swallowing disorders in a wide variety of clinical settings. La Salle’s Speech-Language-Hearing Science (SLHS) programs have a well-established tradition of preparing students with the knowledge base and clinical skills required for successful careers.

Through the high-quality academic program, excellent teaching, and variety of hands-on learning experiences offered at La Salle, undergraduate students are well-prepared for graduate studies at many prestigious institutions, including La Salle. Graduates of La Salle’s Master of Science program in speech-language pathology have an excellent track record in launching their careers—their employment rate is nearly 100 percent, and they have also achieved a near-perfect pass rate on the national certification exam for speech-language pathologists.

Program Options:

  • four-year SLHS program that leads to a Bachelor of Science;
  • an accelerated five-year program in which undergraduate studies lead directly into coursework toward a Master of Science in speech-language pathology;
  • a standalone Master of Science program; and
  • PreSLP program for students who do not have undergraduate degrees in speech-language-hearing science or communication sciences and disorders and need to complete prerequisite coursework to enter the master’s degree program.
