Our academic and clinical programs prepare graduate students to evaluate and treat communication and swallowing disorders in individuals throughout the life span. All students complete an initial clinical practicum at the Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center, a full service center on campus which houses the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, as well as external clinical placements in educational, pediatric, and/or adult settings. The profession also has an excellent employment outlook, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Learn more.
