Speech-Language Pathology, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 36 months


Some SLPs work with children in schools to improve their articulation, language, fluency or voice. Others provide acute care in hospitals for patients with neurological conditions. Still others assist very young children recovering from cleft palates, feeding disorders or autism spectrum diagnoses.

Accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Seton Hall Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (M.S.S.L.P.) program blends clinical, research, classroom and service experiences. Thanks to this well-rounded education, our graduates are consistently employed within one year of completing the program, and many have job offers right away.

The Seton Hall M.S.S.L.P. curriculum is built around three central pillars:

  • academic and skills training
  • clinical training
  • experiential training

In the classroom, your courses will weave together neuroscience, language, literacy, child development and a host of other subjects. You'll apply what you learn almost immediately in your three clinical assignments and other training opportunities. Our students also join faculty-led research, helping to develop literacy programs for hearing-impaired children and assess technologies for early detection of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
