Faculty: School of Communication Sciences and Disorders
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Speech-Language Pathology/Pathologist
Description The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers a professional degree leading to a Master of Science (Applied) in communication sciences and disorders with specialization in speech-language pathology. The profession of speech-language pathology concerns assessment and intervention in speech and language disorders. In particular, the speech-language pathologist is concerned with two major parameters of communication sciences and disorders: language and speech with pediatric and adult populations. At present, most speech-language pathologists in Canada work in hospitals, rehabilitation centres, in schools, special education facilities, and private practice. In Canada, those wanting to practice as speech-language pathologists must have at least master's-level training in communication sciences and disorders. A core of common courses is taken in the first year, with the majority of specialized courses offered in the second year. Students also complete a four-week practicum usually in a pediatric setting at the end of the first academic year and a 12-week internship in one or more settings at the end of the second academic year.
