Since 1921, Ithaca College has been educating students in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology, bringing all of its resources and facilities to bear on their success. Today the department offers two graduate programs leading to the Master of Science degree:
• Speech-Language Pathology (M.S.)
• Speech-Language Pathology with Teacher Certification (M.S.)
Our programs are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and are registered with the New York State Education Department. Students typically choose to major in speech-language pathology (SLP) when they plan to work outside of New York State, or plan to work only with adults in medical settings. The SLP with Teacher Certification degree is more inclusive. Students who major in SLP with Teacher Certification are eligible to work as a speech-language pathologist in medical settings and educational environments; students who major in SLP are qualified to work as a speech-language pathologist in medical settings.
