  • Masters in Speech-Language Pathology

    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.

  • Comprehensive Learning Throughout Program

    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.
