Welcome to the Department of Speech-Language Pathology!
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.
The Master of Science in Education program in Speech-Language Pathology at Monmouth University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. The Program is accredited by the CAA for five years (2018-2023).
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.
