Speech@NYU offers a holistic curriculum that is delivered through rigorous online courses and diverse in-person clinical field placements in or near your community. Our students learn not only to diagnose and treat a variety of speech-language pathology (SLP) disorders but also to apply their knowledge and experience within all three major SLP career paths: the medical, educational, and research settings.
As a Speech@NYU student, you'll study:
Basic human communication and swallowing processes, including their biological, neurological, acoustic, psychological, developmental, linguistic, and cultural sources
Key principles of biological sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, and social/behavioral sciences
Contemporary professional issues and standards of ethical conduct for practicing SLPs
Communication sciences and disorders is a constantly evolving field, and our curriculum prepares you to provide innovative, creative, and comprehensive care to diverse populations in a variety of settings. You'll develop a strong foundation in evidence-based methodology and research, empowering you to think critically as a thorough, thoughtful clinician no matter which SLP career setting you choose.
Speech@NYU is offered on both a part-time and full-time basis. You will complete 48 graduate-level credits, delivered through the following types of courses:
Disorder courses, which teach you to diagnose and treat conditions ranging from dysphagia to motor speech disorders
Clinical practicums and field placements, which give you the opportunity to work directly with both children and adults at clinical sites near your community and during two four-day immersions in New York City
Electives, which enable you to tailor your academic journey to the subject areas that interest you most
If your academic background is in a field other than communication sciences and disorders, you may need to take up to 14 foundation credits. Like the graduate-level courses, all foundation courses are available online. View our course descriptions page to learn more.
