Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology
MISSION
Study and research in this department focus on normal and abnormal speech, language
and hearing processes. Students are prepared for professional careers in the field of
Speech-Language Pathology. Clinical experience which supplements the students’
academic preparation is obtained in the University’s Speech, Hearing and Language
Center, Scottish Rite Language Center, hospitals, clinics and schools. This program is
designed to provide academic, clinical, and research experiences leading to the Master of
Science degree, the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology
and California licensure in Speech-Language Pathology. Students may also qualify for
the California Speech-Language Pathology Services Credential.
The Master’s degree program in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the
Council of Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing
Association. All students must successfully complete clinical practicum requirements as
an inherent part of the department program. A prerequisite to the participation in clinical
practicum is admission to degree candidacy and/or permission of the departmental
faculty. To receive a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology, each student must
demonstrate clinical competence as well as academic success. Clinical competence
means:
1. The ability to identify individuals with communication handicaps;
2. The ability to perform comprehensive evaluation of individuals with communication
handicaps;
3. The ability to effect positive changes in the communication skills of individuals with
communication handicaps;
4. The ability to relate effectively to clients, their families and fellow professionals.
Assessment of these competencies will be made by the faculty before recommending
award of the degree.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY
In order to earn the master of science degree in speech-language pathology, students must
complete a minimum of 55 units with a Pacific cumulative grade point average of 3.0.
