Welcome to the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

Provides an exceptional academic and clinical program in communication disorders to prepare you for professional practice in a dynamic and diverse society.

The speech-language pathology (SLP) program at Ithaca College blends the multifaceted worlds of health sciences, speech and hearing sciences, communication, and communication disorders. As an undergraduate, we focus on providing you with an excellent foundation in basic human communication processes, development, and disorders. You are also exposed to a broad-based experience in liberal arts and general education coursework to complement your discipline-specific learning. A hands-on capstone experience during the junior or senior year completes your undergraduate training. Work with clients on-campus at the Sir Alexander Ewing-Ithaca College Speech and Hearing Clinic or at an approved off-campus clinic site.
