This program offers you an educational opportunity that is unique in the state of Georgia as you pursue your master’s degree in speech-language pathology in its location, clinical population and commitment to excellence.

Each year a cohort of 25-28 master’s degree students enroll in the fall semester, which allows individualized academic and clinical experiences to meet unique needs and interests.

What you’ll learn

You’ll receive an intensive field-based education that prepares you to implement the best practices in the profession, to communicate effectively with your colleagues and clients, to work collaboratively with other professionals who serve individuals with communication disorders and their families, and to pursue opportunities for advanced degrees.

This commitment of our faculty to your studies means that you, as a graduate of the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program, will be sought and valued by schools, hospitals and rehabilitation programs throughout the state and region. In the classroom, you will be engaged in learning through lectures, discussion, small group activities, hands-on experiences, readings, individual assignments and group projects.

Clinical practicum consists of three semesters of on-campus experience in the Georgia State Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic and two semesters of off-campus practicum. In the third semester of on-campus practicum, you also participate in a “mini-internship” at an off-campus facility one day of the week throughout the semester.

During off-campus internships, you are placed one semester at a school and one semester in an adult medical setting. Internships are full-time Monday through Friday throughout the entire semester.
