Speech-Language Pathology (M.A.)
Speech-language pathologists help children and adults alike communicate so they can better connect with others and lead more fulfilling lives.
At Kean, our 57-credit master's program in speech-language pathology prepares students to work with people who have a variety of communication disorders, including articulation, language, voice, fluency, cognition and swallowing issues. The program is available on campus only for either summer or fall admission with deadlines of January 15 and February 15, respectively.
With the demand for speech therapists expected to grow 20 percent in the next decade, our graduates are poised to launch successful careers in schools, hospitals, outpatient care facilities and private practices.
Kean provided me the opportunity to learn from faculty who recognized my passion to learn and nourished that need by providing me with opportunities to further my growth as a clinician and researcher."
At Kean we believe learning and job growth extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms. That's why we encourage you to take advantage of a variety of research opportunities available to you, study abroad and pursue internships that will advance your career or set the stage for another advanced degree.
About two out of five speech-language pathologists worked in schools in 2016. Most others worked in health care facilities, such as hospitals.
