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.


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.
