Clinical Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Minor


This minor prepares you for graduate studies in speech-language pathology
or audiology

The Clinical SLPA minor prepares students for admission into a graduate program in speech-language pathology or audiology. In particular, students in this minor are on a track which, if supplemented with certain elective choices within their major, would meet all admissions requirements for our Department’s own Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology program. 

Students pursuing this minor are advised to consult early and regularly with their academic advisors in order to ensure a timely completion of the combination of their major and the Clinical SLPA Minor requirements.
