About

The Master of Science in Communication Disorders Program (MSCD) at Stockton University has a curriculum designed to prepare program graduates for certification as speech language pathologists by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and for certification as Speech-Language Specialists in the New Jersey Public Schools.

Overview

The mission of the Master of Science in Communication Disorders Program is to prepare students for New Jersey Licensure and for certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in speech-language pathology, as well as for certification as Speech-Language Specialists by the New Jersey Department of Education; to demonstrate the principles of evidence-based practice; to provide opportunities for continuing education; and to provide direct clinical services to the surrounding community.

All Master's degree candidates must complete 400 clinical hours of supervised clinical experience. Of these 400 hours, 25 must be in supervised observation. Per ASHA certification requirements, at least 325 of the 400 clinical hours must be completed at the graduate level. Students will receive clinical experience both on campus in Stockton's Speech and Hearing Clinic and off campus in various clinical placements. Students will be able to graduate having had a variety of clinical experiences. Students must enroll full-time in the MSCD Program. The requirements are demanding but the outcome is rewarding.
