Speech Dual Admission Program

Dual Admission – Speech-Language Pathology

Bachelor's Degree and Master of Science Speech-Language Pathology Degree

A dual admission program in speech-language pathology is offered to qualified freshmen. This program leads to a Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology (M.S.). This specialized career field is concerned with the identification, assessment, and treatment of speech-language and communication disorders in children and adults. Graduates of this program hold responsible positions in public and private schools, hospital and clinics, skilled nursing facilities, and private practices.

Students admitted to the program must major in Speech-Language and Communication Disorders (SLCD). Upon successful completion of the master’s application process, students will be admitted to the M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology if requirements are met. This program provides the required coursework and clinical experiences necessary to obtain Florida licensure.
