Our challenging pre-professional program brings together theoretical knowledge, research, and clinical practice to give you exceptional preparation for a future in speech-language pathology and audiology.
You will learn critical thinking as it applies to clinical problem-solving, how to relate classroom theory to clinical settings, use the resources of SUNY Cortland’s Center for Speech, Language and Hearing Disorders, and have the opportunity to work closely with top-notch faculty on clinical research.
Ultimately, a master’s degree is necessary for professional positions in speech-language pathology and an Au.D. is needed to practice as an audiologist. Graduates from our program go on to successful careers as speech-language pathologists and audiologists in schools, medical centers, rehabilitation clinics, acute care, industry, and many other settings.
We have the Cortland Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA).
