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 63-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.
On March 22, 2021, The Master of Arts (M.A.) education program in speech-language pathology at Kean University was placed on probation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. A program on probation is not currently in full compliance with the accreditation standards. Programs on probation remain accredited but must demonstrate compliance with the standards within one year. https://caa.asha.org/programs/accreditation-decisions/
The probationary status is due to Standard 1.9 which states The program provides information about the program and the institution to students and to the public that is current, accurate, and readily available. More specifically, the website was using the label “Student Outcomes” rather than “Student Achievement Data” or “Student Outcome Data” and the website had not listed the data in number and percentage for the most current years. The corrections have been made, and the end-of probation report was submitted immediately. We are currently awaiting for our end-of-probation report to be reviewed by the CAA at their upcoming meeting.
About 52% of speech-language pathologists work in the schools with about 39% working in all health care facilities combined.
