Welcome to the Department of Speech-Language Pathology

Help people young and old overcome communication challenges

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, you will obtain an excellent clinical and academic foundation in basic human communication processes, development, and disorders. In addition to learning about your discipline, you will receive a broad-based experience in liberal arts and general education. You will complete your experience as undergraduate with a hands-on capstone experience during the junior or senior year. You can choose to work with clients at the Sir Alexander Ewing-Ithaca College Speech and Hearing Clinic or at an approved off-campus clinic site, such as Longview or Head Start.

Our students are well-prepared to enter graduate degree programs in speech-language pathology (you can opt to remain at Ithaca College for graduate study) and related fields of study.
