Speech Language Pathology

Program Information
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Speech-Language Pathology/Pathologist
Description The MHSc program prepares students for professional practice in speech‑language pathology. Academic and clinical experiences are integrated to provide the skills required for assessing and treating a wide variety of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders. The MHSc program can only be completed on a full‑time basis. The academic faculty and clinical educators are committed to the preparation of the best possible clinicians to meet the needs of individuals with speech and language disorders in the decades ahead. The program is conducted not only in the classroom but also in laboratories with state-of-the art clinical equipment and in one of North America’s largest and most diverse group of clinical training sites. Our up-to-date and innovative curriculum enables graduates to bridge the gap between the theoretical knowledge learned in the classroom and practical applications in today’s demanding and evolving practice environments. Several key features of the curriculum enhance the quality of student learning and foster theory-to-practice integration, including: (a) explicit learning objectives, reflecting the skills and abilities of exemplary practitioners; (b) a capstone portfolio, in which students document achievement of these learning objectives; (c) strong links between the academic and internship portions of the curriculum; (d) systematic development of student competencies across the curriculum, with particular emphasis on research evidence as the foundation for professional practice; (e) integrative learning experiences, which enable students to deepen, integrate, and apply concepts and principles from related academic courses; (f) teaching clinics, in which students evaluate and develop professional skills in a supportive learning environment; and (g) clearly specified internship expectations that ensure consistent development of professional competencies for all students.
