(NYC)

Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

The Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology program on Pace University’s New York City Campus provides a strong foundation in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology, and prepares students for a variety of career opportunities in hospitals, schools, community agencies, private practice, and research. This program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.

Speech-language pathologists are concerned with evaluation, treatment, and research in human communication disorders. They treat such disorders as stuttering, voice and articulation disorders, and delayed language development. Audiologists specialize in hearing conservation, identification, assessment, and habilitation of hearing disorders.

The speech-language pathology and audiology major introduces students to the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. This program provides a strong foundation for graduate study in either of these fields and prepares students for a variety of career opportunities in hospitals, schools, community agencies, private practice, or research. 

Three tracks are offered - all within the required 120-credit minimum:   

SLP non-teaching track: introduction to the two fields and preparation for graduate study, this track allows students to minor in another area of study (e.g. psychology, health studies);
