Monmouth University’s 60-credit Masters in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) offers you a comprehensive curriculum with specific, specialized courses in hybrid formats, and delivers a strong focus on evidence-based practice. Students participate in over four hundred hours of clinical practicum experience.
Our 26-person cohort model ensures small class sizes, and Monmouth’s Center for Speech and Language Disorders gives you critical hands-on experience diagnosing and treating communication disorders in children and adults under close professional supervision.
The triad approach in our speech pathology graduate program also includes research opportunities, allowing you to immerse yourself in an area of study and make a true impact on the SLP field. Working closely with faculty, clinical supervisors, professional speech-language pathologists, and allied health professionals, you will emerge from this program with the multifaceted educational and experiential foundation you need for a fulfilling, in-demand career.
This is a summer-start program with continuous enrollment over a two-year period. Courses are taught at the Monmouth University Graduate Center, located two miles from the main campus.

One of the core benefits of the program is that students participate in over 400 hours of clinical practicum experience at Monmouth University’s Center for Speech and Language Disorders, an on-campus community clinic.
One of the most unique and valuable components of Monmouth's Speech-Language Pathology graduate program is the university's Center for Speech and Language Disorders, an on-campus community clinic where rehabilitation services are provided by our graduate students. Here, Katie Taylor, Class of 2017, is being supervised in the Center for Speech and Language Disorders during a child language session.
Graduate students learn a diverse array of treatment services. Lauren Meade, Class of 2017, provides play based language therapy to a local community member.

SLP Strategic Plan
The ideal way to learn is coupling classroom instruction with real-world opportunities, practicing your profession as you learn. Monmouth’s Masters in SLP offers such opportunities through its service learning program and the Center for Speech and Language Disorders, a busy community clinic that provides a range of treatment and rehabilitation services to the community. You will work under the direct supervision of a NJ licensed speech-language pathologist who is certified by American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA).
Students also enjoy the advantage of Monmouth’s numerous relationships with schools and hospitals, giving you access to experiential learning opportunities at a range of healthcare, hospital and outpatient organizations. Such relationships help with internship placement, and provide important opportunities to put your classroom learning into practice under the supervision of a skilled and experienced practitioner.
As part of the program, you’ll complete a service learning project, which balances formal instruction and direction with the opportunity to serve in the community. This gives you a pragmatic, progressive learning experience and an immediate opportunity to use your classroom learning to support the work of local agencies creating positive change in the community, while giving you yet another opportunity to gain valuable experience in your field.

Dr. Erik X. Raj regularly presents interactive workshops demonstrating how school-based speech-language pathologists can use technology to motivate and teach students on their caseload. In addition to developing numerous top-ranking educational iPad apps for children with communication difficulties, Dr. Raj has directed the instructional DVD component to the award-winning speech-language pathology book titled 'Your Voice is Your Business' by Plural Publishing.
Dr. Elisabeth Mlawski's research interests include effectiveness of treatment, language development across the lifespan, and language and literacy in school-age children. She and Alexis Cattano (Class of 2017) co-presented their paper "Examining Leader Behaviors of Kindergarten Students During Peer Learning" at the Oxford Research Symposium, held March 17th-19th 2016.
The Master of Science in Education (MSEd) program in speech/language pathology at Monmouth University is a Candidate for Accreditation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This is a “pre-accreditation” status with the CAA (for more information click here), awarded to developing or emerging programs for a maximum period of five years.
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. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at SLPinfo@monmouth.edu.
Admission is granted one time per year. Full-time students will be accepted for summer admission and will begin a strict sequence of study in the summer. The admission deadline for Summer 2018 is February 1, 2018 - all materials must be submitted by that deadline.
Students who have a bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology/Communication Sciences and Disorders from an accredited institution may apply for admission. Students with a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than Speech-Language Pathology/Communication Sciences and Disorders may apply for admission after completing up to 18 credits of prerequisite course work. As is the case with most graduate programs in speech-language pathology, admission is highly competitive. To be considered for admission, students must submit an application to Monmouth University along with a $50 application fee, and meet the following requirements:
