Getting started with Speech Pathology Pathology

  • During high school, you should consider courses in biology, physics, social sciences, English, mathematics, public speaking, language, and psychology.
  • On the undergraduate level, a strong arts and sciences focus is recommended, with course work in linguistics, phonetics, anatomy, psychology, human development, biology, physiology, mathematics, physical science, social/behavioral sciences, and semantics. A program of study in communication sciences and disorders is available at the undergraduate level.

Applicants in speech-language pathology must earn a graduate degree, successfully complete the required clinical experiences, and pass a national examination. In some areas, such as college teaching, research, and private practice, a PhD degree is desirable.
