Accelerated Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology

The accelerated master's degree in speech-language pathology is designed to produce highly skilled clinicians seeking to enter the field. This program enables qualified students to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders and count up to 12 hours of 700-level or above course work in the major completed in Year 4 of study for both the Bachelor’s and M.A. Speech-Language Pathology degrees. The M.A. is completed in the fifth year or beyond.

An accelerated master's degree from KU will, in most circumstances, satisfy the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's certification standards for continuing on to the clinical fellowship year. A certificate of clinical competence in speech-language pathology is awarded upon completion of a successful clinical fellowship.
