New York University’s Communicative Sciences and Disorders program prepares students to work as speech-language pathologists.

Speech-language pathologists work with the full range of human communication and swallowing disorders for individuals young and old. They work in many different health care, educational, and research settings with varying roles, responsibilities, and client populations.

This program leads to eligibility for New York State licensure as a speech-language pathologist.

Students may also be eligible for licensure in other states outside of New York; however, licensure requirements differ from state to state. Most state licensing boards require a master’s degree, testing, and potentially additional post-graduate coursework/supervised clinical experience requirements. Please refer to NYU Steinhardt’s Professional Licensure page for state-by-state information.
