The course of study for this degree 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). Our program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of ASHA.
Academic Program: The academic curriculum is typically completed in 5-6 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). See SLP courses for a listing of courses.
Clinical Practicum: The speech-language pathology program has affiliation 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.
