The Master of Arts in Speech, Language and Hearing Science at Temple University’s College of Public Health is a clinical professional degree that prepares students to become speech-language pathologists.


Through rigorous clinical training, students of the Speech, Language and Hearing Science program at Temple University learn to evaluate, diagnose and treat communication disorders.
