About

The master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology strives to produce highly skilled clinicians seeking to enter the field. Most students will be able to complete the program in four full-time semesters and one or two summers with a common entry point in the fall semester.

Overview

Exceptions may occur for the student who has a number of prerequisites to complete or who is conducting an extensive research project. A master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology from University of Kansas will, in most circumstances, satisfy the American Speech-Language Hearing Association's certification standards for continuing on to the clinical fellowship year. A certificate of clinical competence in speech-language pathology is awarded upon completion of a successful clinical fellowship.

About the Intercampus Program in Communicative Disorders

This program is offered through the Intercampus Program in Communicative Disorders which consists of the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders on the KU Lawrence campus and the Department of Hearing and Speech on the KU Medical Center campus. The Department of Speech-Language-Hearing is within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, while the Department of Hearing and Speech is part of the KU School of Health Professions.

Students take courses on both campuses. Block scheduling of courses reduces the frequency of commuting. A committee of faculty from both departments is responsible for instruction, curriculum planning, student selection and advising, clinical practicum policies, and course scheduling.
