Speech Language Pathology: M.A.


The M.A. in speech-language pathology provides opportunities for learning the theoretical bases for clinical practice and the application of knowledge to clinical practice in a learning community that values diversity, advocates for life-long learning, promotes a culture of respect for others and guides the development of professionals who provide competent and compassionate service to people with communication and swallowing disorders and their families through the lifespan in educational and health care settings. The curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive balance of academic and clinical experiences that addresses all KASA 2020 requirements and prepares students to meet the ASHA standards for professional certification following successful completion of the PRAXIS exam and a clinical fellowship period. The Speech Language and Hearing Clinic serves as the first hands-on clinical experience for the students of the program.

All M.A. program applicants are required to apply online through CSDCAS. Within a few days of completing the CSDCAS application, the University of Delaware Graduate College will send you a link to the Slate supplemental application that you will need to complete. Please ONLY create a Slate application through the link you will be sent, and reach out to if you created a Slate application without this link so that we can remove that application, as it will conflict with the one created via the link we send. See our website to learn more about the SLP MA and Extended Track + SLP MA track options.
