Speech-language pathology is an inherently personalized profession. We work with patients and students one-on-one and in small groups to diagnose and treat individual needs. In comparison to the large graduate SLP programs offered by New England state and Boston private colleges and universities, we are opting for a different approach with smaller class sizes and more personalized attention to students. By focusing on individual needs and interests, we can accommodate non-traditional students such as career-changers with late afternoon and evening classes and offer a structured part-time option. Of course, new college graduates are welcome too. Your learning experience as a graduate student will mirror your future work in the profession: created for the individual.
As a speech-language pathologist, you will be able to work with clients of all ages and backgrounds, within a wide array of settings including hospitals and clinics, nursing homes, private practices, and schools. The mission of our program is to prepare you to enter the field of speech-language pathology with the skills necessary to assess and to treat a diverse population of individuals, to integrate scholarship and policy into practice and to serve and lead in the community.
