MA in Speech-Language Pathology

“We offer an established, nationally accredited program in speech-language pathology that offers five different clinical rotations, which complement a comprehensive curriculum, and leads to national certification and state licensure of our graduates.” -Dr. Roy Shinn- Program Head

The Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology at Edinboro University was established in 1974 and since then, hundreds of our alumni have been practicing in the U.S. and around the world. This two-year full-time program prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills to evaluate and treat a wide variety of communication and swallowing disorders across the life span. A total of five clinical rotations (two on campus and three internships) enable students to develop and refine their clinical skills under the supervision of a qualified practitioner in various settings.

Upon completion of our Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) accredited program, a passing score on the national examination in speech-language pathology, and successful completion of a clinical fellowship, graduates become eligible for national certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and a state license to practice in Pennsylvania from the Pennsylvania Board of Examiners in Speech, Language, and Hearing. Students in the program planning to practice in the school setting may also pursue certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
