Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology
Iowa City, IA
About the course
Graduates of our program can work as speech-language pathologists in any clinical setting because of the excellent and varied educational opportunities provided by the University of Iowa’s MA degree in speech-language pathology. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s clinical certification standards must be satisfied by all graduates of the master’s programme in speech-language pathology offered by the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
Our goal is to create professionals with the theoretical knowledge and cutting-edge clinical abilities necessary to provide clinical services in speech-language pathology. The MA programme does not require a thesis, however there are chances for those students who are particularly interested in pursuing a research topic with a faculty mentor to engage in research.
