About

The Speech-Language Pathology program of the Moravian College is a full-time, two-year, professional program preparing graduates to work as Speech-Language Pathologists. The program utilizes a problem based approach to learning and emphasizes interprofessional education.

Overview

Problem-Based Learning (PBL)

The PBL approach to education requires students to draw upon their life experiences in order to solve problems or case studies that encompass a variety of culturally, linguistically and socially diverse individuals/families with communication/swallowing difficulties. Thus, the Speech-Language Pathology program of the Moravian College is designed around problem cases that allow students to work in small groups and explore and reflect on their own attitudes and perspectives, develop these perspectives through reference to academic resources, participate in team-based deliberations and critically analyze and evaluate information and issues relevant to the profession.

Interprofessional Education

The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, which houses the Speech-Language Pathology Program, focuses on interprofessional education and preparing students to become collaborative health care practitioners in a multi-disciplinary health care environment. The unique curricular structure of the program, allows students and faculty to engage across disciplines in an integrative educational environment modeled after best practices in the clinical setting.

  • Communication & Swallowing Disorders
