A REWARDING CAREER IN A FAST-GROWING FIELD

Pace University’s Master of Science (MS) in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students for exciting careers as speech-language pathologists, which evaluate, treat, and research communication disorders such as stuttering, voice and articulation disorders, and delayed language development.

Through a combination of 60 credits of academic and clinical coursework and 400 hours of clinical practicum—three semesters in-house at our facilities which include an on-site Speech and Hearing Center, audiology test suite, and speech lab with state-of-the-art equipment and two semesters at an external placement—students graduate ready to take on the challenges faced by 40 million people in the United States alone. 

This program prepares graduates to sit for the PRAXIS examination in speech-language pathology. Graduates will be eligible for American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certification, as well as other relevant local and state credentials upon graduation.
