Introduction

The Speech-Language Pathology Department provides undergraduate coursework for students planning careers in speech-language pathology or audiology. Departmental majors may complete work leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Students who earn the Master's degree qualify for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Speech-Language Pathology Services Credential from the California Commission for Teacher Credentialing, and the State of California Licensure in Speech-Language Pathology. Students pursuing the B.A. degree may qualify for State of California Licensure as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant.

The department maintains a language, speech and hearing clinic to serve as a clinical and research laboratory on campus for both graduate and undergraduate students. Field placements are available in local hospitals, rehabilitation agencies, language/speech/hearing clinics, and public schools.

Prospective students must attend a group advising meeting presented monthly by the undergraduate advisor and AARC (Academic Advising and Resource Center). Once students have declared Speech-Language Pathology as their major, they will be required to meet with an advisor in AARC once each semester.

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology at CSULB is fully accredited, by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
