Speech-language pathology offers a five-year, entry-level masters’ program. Students completing this curriculum will receive the bachelor of science degree in health science at the conclusion of the fourth year of study if the student has met all undergraduate major, core, and free elective requirements, as described in the plan of study.
Students completing the BS in Health Science will:
- Students will integrate and demonstrate knowledge of diverse research designs from both the qualitative and quantitative paradigms, and will conceptually synthesize and demonstrate all steps of the research process.
- Demonstrate critical reasoning skills in the patient care process by conducting a client assessment, identifying functional problems, and developing an appropriate intervention plan.
- Interact and communicate professionally and courteously with clients while demonstrating the necessary clinical competencies required within their respective health care discipline.
Statement of Program Assessment for BS in Health Science:
Program courses are evaluated each semester via both University facutly evaluations and individual department course evaluations in the Speech Language Pathology.
The Speech Language Pathology curriculum is evaluated by assessment measures which include fieldwork and clinical pass rates, Board pass rates, alumni job placement rates, alumni surveys, and employer satisfaction surveys.
Individual student performance is monitored via assessment each semester of student attainment of the required GPA in the major in the Speech Language Pathology department.
Plans of study for the graduate year, and all other information regarding the program, may be found in the Speech-Language Pathology MS program section
