    Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    Our program is a clinically-oriented training program, starting with the preprofessional undergraduate degree (a Bachelor of Science degree) and culminating with the Master of Science degree. We provide basic clinical training for all settings in which speech language pathologists practice, which range from preschools and elementary through secondary schools to hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and nursing facilities. We prepare you to work with communication and swallowing disorders from the cradle through the golden years!

    As we are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, our master’s graduates meet the academic and practicum requirements for the Certificate of Clinical Competence awarded by that association. They also meet licensure requirements in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as in other states.

    What You Can Do

    Speech-language professionals make a difference in the lives of others. Speech language pathologists help stroke victims struggling to talk to their family and kindergartners frustrated when their teachers can’t understand their words. As a speech-language pathology and audiology major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, you’ll be taking your first, important step toward becoming a speech-language pathologist or audiologist.

    Some of the undergraduate classes you’ll take for your major include Clinical Phonology, Aural Rehabilitation, Language Development, and Speech Science.

    You’ll also study topics such as school law and educational psychology. IUP has earned a reputation for outstanding preparation to practice in the schools.
