Overview

If you would like to become a speech-language pathologist but perhaps have job or family commitments that prevent you from attending a full-time master’s program, then we encourage you to consider the Master’s of Science via distance-education (MS-DE), which is offered part-time through distance learning. If you would like to become a speech-language pathologist and can attend a full-time master’s program, then we encourage you to consider the residential Master’s of Science (MS-Res).
