The Master's Degree program in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association,
The course of study for the MA Degree with a major in Speech-Language Pathology is designed to meet the requirements for the Master of Arts degree at Wayne State University as well as satisfying the academic requirements for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology awarded by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). In addition, students who complete the program are eligible for state licensure.
The academic curriculum is typically completed in 5-6 consecutive semesters of full-time enrollment. Students take courses in developmental and acquired communication and swallowing disorders, and courses in the related sciences (e.g., neuroscience, speech science). A complete listing of the academic courses required for the MA degree, including undergraduate prerequisites, is available here.
See also SLP courses for a listing of courses in the University's Graduate Bulletin.
The speech-language pathology program at Wayne State has affiliations with over 40 established satellite/cooperative institutions, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers for work with our students. Graduate students enroll in two internships in which they receive experience with children and adults at two official professional settings within the Metropolitan Detroit/Windsor, Canada area. We are particularly proud of this cooperative training opportunity for our graduate students. In addition to the off-campus facilities, the Department maintains an active clinic on campus, housed in Rackham Memorial Building with our department offices and resource center. We feel that the clinical experiences which a Master's student obtains while attending Wayne State University provide the fundamentals for being an effective clinician.
