Why study speech-language pathology and audiology at Northeastern?
Our Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology program is designed from innovation and modern advances in human communication sciences and disorders. Makerspaces, labs, and applied workshops prepare students to work in educational settings, medical and rehabilitation centers, and private practice clinics.
Speech-Language Pathologists treat disorders such as developmental language and articulation disorders, voice and resonance problems, stuttering, and language and cognitive impairments due to stroke, head injury, and progressive neurological diseases.
Audiologists specialize in the prevention, identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of hearing disorders. Individuals with congenital and acquired hearing impairments are seen for services by audiologists. They prescribe and dispense hearing aids and instruct the use of amplification for individuals with congenital and acquired hearing impairments.
