Speech-Language Pathology MA – Online Program

Speech Language Pathology

An Innovative Online Master's Preparing Skilled Speech-Language Pathologists

The Speech-Language Pathology Master of Arts – Online Program prepares you for entry-level employment as a speech-language pathologist using a clinician-researcher model that provides a strong academic background and a foundation in evidence-based practice. It is offered in a primarily online format to meet the needs of non-traditional students with employment or family commitments that preclude participation in a traditional on-campus program.

You will visit our Greeley campus for one 2-week period during the third semester in the summer for laboratory experiences associated with coursework and academic advising. The program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) through September 2017.

This three-year master's degree program is offered by the Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences (ASLS) program of the College of Natural and Health Sciences, delivered online with the support of UNC Extended Campus. We admit a cohort (group of students moving through the program together) of students for the Fall term of every even numbered year.

Eligibility for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence

This Master of Arts program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) through September 2017, and by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE).

  • Students who complete this program, complete the clinical fellowship and pass the Praxis exam are eligible to apply for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Eight weeks of internship in public schools are required to be eligible for licensure from the Colorado Department of Education. Each state has specific rules for licensure, so if you plan to practice out of state please check with that state's requirements to ensure that this program will fit your needs.
