Graduates will meet the academic requirements for certification as a speech-language pathologist by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Students wishing to work in Illinois public schools will also be provided with opportunities to meet requirements for licensure by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Why Choose Speech Pathology at WIU?
The graduate program in Speech Pathology at Western Illinois University is a close-knit community of students and faculty. Class sizes are twenty or fewer which allows for lively group discussions and hands-on learning. Students frequently meet with faculty one-on-one to discuss course material, clinic clients, or future career plans. We are one of only a handful of graduate programs to offer a formal study abroad opportunity. During the summer between the fist and second years, two to four students travel to Cardiff, Wales to complete clinical practica experiences through Cardiff Metropolitan University.
