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.
