If your bachelor’s degree is not in
Speech-Language Pathology, you need to take a few extra courses to be prepared
for your graduate coursework.
In this full-time, year-round track,
you’ll take 87 credits (21 “leveler” credits and 66 graduate) two and a half
years and leave prepared to enter the job market.
You are eligible for the leveler track if:
- You have a bachelor’s degree.
You must have at least one 3-credit course in each of the following areas. Classes from the Communication Sciences & Disorders discipline cannot be used to meet these foundational requirements. We recommend that these courses be taken prior to enrollment; however, if they are not taken prior to enrollment they will be integrated into your course sequence which may result in extending your program. These courses are a requirement to receive the M.S. degree from this department.
- Biological Sciences (cell biology, human anatomy & physiology, neuroanatomy & neurophysiology, human genetics, veterinary science). The introductory course for Biology majors (BIO 181 in Arizona universities) will meet this requirement. Lab not required. Classes intended for non-majors (e.g., NAU’s BIO 100) or deemed too narrow in scope (e.g., NAU’s BIO 301) will not meet the Biological Sciences requirement.
- Physical Sciences (recommended: physics, chemistry) (accepted: astronomy, archaeology, forestry, geology, earth or environmental science)
- Statistics (Standalone statistics course; research methodology not accepted; Generally a course with the word "statistics" in the title from any department meets this requirement)
- Social/Behavioral Sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology, public health)
