Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

Looking to mix personal interactions with a career in health services, teaching, or the sciences? Majoring in SLP&A is the best way to prepare yourself for grad school and your career in the allied health professions: you could be a speech-language pathologist or audiologist, an ESL teacher or a sign language interpreter, a special education teacher or rehabilitation counselor… the possibilities are endless to find a career you’ll love.

Furthermore, SLP&A majors are in-demand: according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2014), there will be a 21 percent increase in job openings for speech-language pathologists between 2014 and 2024. 


Minor in SLP&A OR Language Sciences

Are you pursuing another major but have an interest in linguistic theory, communications systems, or the implications of language diversity in cultural and political contexts? Consider one of our minors to complement your studies.
