Speech-Language Pathology

Department Website

The master's degree program is a six-semester, full-time curriculum designed to promote competence (knowledge of normal and disordered communication) and performance (clinical and research skills) in the discipline. During the final semesters, students complete supervised off-campus clinical internships in the public schools and medical settings. The academic and clinical requirements prepare students for employment in a variety of settings including medical, private practice, and schools.

The master's program in speech-language pathology at UNC is accredited by the Colorado Department of Education and the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The department also houses the UNC Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Clinic, which provides a variety of diagnostic and rehabilitative services to the community as well as student training opportunities. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for certification from ASHA. Graduates also qualify for licensure from the Colorado Department of Education.

Admission applications are due by February 1 for admission in August of the same year. Applicants should begin this process with sufficient time for letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and transcripts to arrive by February 1. Financial aid determinations for WRGP and program awards are competitive and are made based upon merit.
