About

The graduate curriculum of the Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences program of the University of Colorado at Boulder leads to a Master of Arts degree.

Overview

The Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences program of the University of Colorado at Boulder is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) and the Colorado State Department of Education.

Focus Areas

There are two areas of focus available at the MA level:

  • MA leading to professional certification in speech-language pathology
  • Research

Professional Certification Focus

The master's degree program leading to professional certification in speech-language pathology (MA-SLP) is designed to provide a theoretically and clinically rich path for students planning to work as speech-language pathologists in medical, educational, and private practice settings.  Students in the MA-SLP program are provided with a strong foundation of theoretical and clinical knowledge through their coursework and clinical experiences.

Students completing the MA-SLP program obtain a Master of Arts degree from the University of Colorado and are eligible to receive the Certificate of Clinical Competence in speech-language pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) upon successful completion of the clinical fellowship year and the national PRAXIS examination. Students can also apply for Colorado State Licensure to work in the public schools.

Research Focus

The master's program with a research focus allows students to design their own master's degree in SLHS in any topic related to speech, language or hearing sciences. This degree does not result in clinical certification. Working with an advisor, students design a plan of study, with coursework within SLHS and from other departments. A master's thesis is required.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Evidence-based Practice and Research Methods
  • Competencies and Strategies for the SLPA
  • Language Disorders in School Age Children
  • Acquired Language Disorders in Adults
  • Dysphagia
  • Augmentative Alternative Communication: Theory and Use
