Department of Speech-Language Pathology

Real-World Ready

Preparing the next generation of Speech Language Pathologists through research and clinical experience

About the Department

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) is distinguished by its clinical training component. The Monmouth University Center for Speech and Language Disorders provides an in house clinical experience for first year SLP students, who are supervised by licensed speech-language pathologists. Second year students are engaged in externships with community partners, including public schools, clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, special schools, and private practices. These community- based experiences assist the novice clinician in exploring complex populations and provides them with hands on instruction in how to deliver evidence based speech-language and cognitive treatments.

Speech-Language Pathology places a great deal of emphasis on involving students in research. SLP students have presented their research projects locally at the Monmouth University Student Scholarship week and nationally at the National Convention of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. Current faculty research includes studies on fluency, peer learning mechanisms, and eye-tracking in persons with Rett syndrome.

Accreditation signifies to students, the general public, and all interested parties that the program of study has met the rigorous standards designed to ensure that programs are striving toward excellence in educating students. The ASHA Web site provides greater detail on what accreditation requires and means to students and the public. Concerns regarding Monmouth’s accreditation may be referred to the CAA.
