The program in speech-language pathology prepares master's level professionals. The accredited MA/MS program is focused on student training to evaluate and manage individuals across the lifespan who are suspected or have been identified as having disorders or differences associated with speech, voice, language, and feeding/swallowing. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to apply for national certification through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and to obtain an Educator's license in the state of Utah. Graduates of the Listening and Spoken Language emphasis area are eligible for a hearing impairment endorsement to attach to their educator's license.

The master's degree program is a two-year (six semester) post-baccalaureate residency program. Additional coursework leading to a hearing impairment endorsement is available and subject to acceptance into the Listening and Spoken Language emphasis area within the Speech-Language Pathology division.
